Podcast Show Notes: Trajectories: Career Paths of IT Stars

Bob Rhubart
Architect Community Manager

How old were you when you first started experimenting with writing code?  How did that early interest evolve into your current career?

The genesis of this program was an interview I did with Sean Phillips at the Oracle Code event in Atlanta. Sean is Principal Software Engineer at a.i. Solutions, where he works with NASA creating applications that plot trajectories for space missions.

In that interview I asked Sean about his own trajectory, about the career path that lead from his teenage interest in computers to a cool job making sure that zillion-dollar spacecraft get where they’re supposed to go. After the interview Sean and I agreed that it would be fun and interesting to get the career backstories from other accomplished developers and IT pros. Sean suggested several people to serve as panelists, and the result is the conversation you are about to hear. Listen!
