Why I Tech
Everytime I watch an 1800s movie I realize how glad I am to be alive now. We are surrounded by ever evolving technology to which, like never before, we can easily contribute to and influence.
My personal tech/IT-trend 2017
Collaborative, open source and data challenges. Companies are writing their code as open source solutions, which everybody else can use and also improve. Data. I can see data everywhere.
