Kai König about simplicity and aesthetics
Show Notes

Kai started by describing his first steps into HTML, manually scratching his own itch. He then described his troubled studies and how he ended up in an apprenticeship position. We then spoke about the beauty of the Ruby language, about intuition and aesthetics. We discussed testing, TDD and the art of producing simple code. We finally jumped forward to the no-code movement and the future of our industry.

Kai König has had several roles in tech including, Product Owner, Team Manager, Systems- and Software Developer. His passion is in building teams, companies, strategies, and systems in general. He currently focuses on Business Development, building and growing an Integration Platform as a Service for the company "Bitspark". When not working on client projects, Kai enjoys fixing migration code in the Open Source Framework Django or improving the documentation for the Google Python SDKs.
