knowledge-featured

I remember when I started as a Technical Evangelist: I wanted to know everything, and I was feeling bad when I didn’t know something. I had this imposter syndrome as I thought that, as a mentor for many developers, my role was to be that go to person for all in all. Over time, I... Read more

Last week, I was talking with someone about my role as a Technical Evangelist: the person was quite surprised that I went from Microsoft to Mozilla. Of course, the company structure, and culture are really different, but I never quit the Open Source world. Part of my role for my previous employer was to help... Read more

Since I’ve moved to a new gig, I thought it would be great to give some visibility to my replacement, Rami Sayar! It’s not that I don’t want to help people, but I... Read more

Thanks Microsoft
