My (video) interview with Pluralsight

So, I mentioned in my ‘First year of programming’- blog post about a video interview that Pluralsightdid with me at the NDC conference in Oslo, Norway this summer. And I noticed on twitter this morning that the video had been put up on Pluralsight during the night, how fun! I was interviewed by Aaron Skonnard, Pluralsight CEO,- a person with a tremendous passion for what he does!

Me with the Plurasight team at NDC 2012

I had such a great time at NDC, and it was really great to meet the Pluralsight team and the authors. I got to help them out at the booth (because I wanted to) which gave me the opportunity to talk to many developers, speakers, authors and attendees- and I had the time of my life! And if you haven’t tried the any of the tutorials on Pluralsight I recommend that you do. I’m not in any way sponsored by them- I just really like what they are doing, what they stand for, and the people involved. It has been an invaluable part of my learning during the last year (and so has what I’ve learned in school), and will continue to be.

I see from your interview that you decided to change to a software career later in life. I did the same at 26 ... I used to work in accounting (hated it). I threw in my job and went back to university to study software engineering ... that was 10 years ago and I can honestly say I have never looked back and am so thankful that I made that decision and took the risk. I love my job and it has seen me working all over the world. 

I do end up working with people much younger than me but I don't find this a problem ... age is irrelevant if you keep  your skills up to date :)
