All the way from San Fransisco, Ryan Wisnesky takes us on a journey of his career in Tech. Starting as a QA Engineer, moving to programming and eventually starting a company as a co-founder that was based on his final dissertation for his PhD at Harvard. Do Mathematicians need to know programming these days? How has his company, Conexus, helped Uber? What are the main responsibilities of a CTO and much more. Enjoy! and don't forget to leave a review on iTunes.
Here are some links that Ryan shared with us.
