Guillermo first took us through his very early steps in the software world... as a child. He then explained how he discovered he could make a living out of it, and how it shaped his perception. We then discussed how he grew learning and teaching in online communities and how he finally decided to move to the Silicon Valley. We finally touched on moving away and stepping into a new life.
Guillermo is a serial entrepreneur. He is the founder of ZEIT, socket.io and MongooseJS. He is also the co-creator of Now, Next.js, LearnBoost and Cloudup. Finally, Guillermo is a former mentor and the author of the book "Smashing Node.js".
Note: for technical reasons, we could not use the tools I usually use to record this great interview. I had thus less flexibility to edit the podcast in the end. There are a couple distortions that I couldn't remove in the end.
