Interview with Russ Olsen at Codemotion Milan 2019
About
Russ Olsen delivered the talk "We Choose" during the conference Codemotion Milan 2019. We interviewed Russ asking him these questions: Lunar landing was possible thanks to engineers and developers on Earth whose choices still inspire engineers and developers today. How is that possible? In your experience as a generalist developer, what have been the main advantages of not being a specialist? Which non-technical skills are crucial for software developers these days? You are Vice President of Cognitec, and many of your products focus on data and big data - is there a growing interest? Which technology would you suggest to a developer who want to approach big data analysis?

Russ Olsen
Vice PresidentCognitect
Russ started his career doing that other kind of engineering, the sort that involves motors, gears and getting dirty. Pretty rapidly the wonder of computer programming lured him away, which probably explains why most of his fingers are still intact. Since turning to coding, Russ has worked on everything from 3D design and image processing software to database query engines and workflow systems. Russ is the author of two programming books and a frequent conference speaker.
