“If you don’t know the technology, you don’t really know what you can achieve. It’s when you combine the business knowledge and the technology that you achieve something special.”
Veronica Augustsson, CEO of Cinnober, discusses the importance of tying together technical and business knowledge. Augustsson says that as a developer, one must not be easily discouraged when others tell them their ideas seem impossible. Knowing the capabilities of your technology will help generate new solutions to existing problems. Augustsson also touches on the importance of curiosity and why we should be driven by our curiosity to innovate and improve existing technologies. She says that finding an environment that helps inspire and drive your curiosity is essential.
