Developer's Journey
#34 Richard Rodger
November 05, 2018 Timothée Bourguignon / Richard Rodger

In this episode I talked to Richard Rodger. Richard was co-founder and CEO of his previous company, nearForm, where he helped take the company from scratch to an annual turnover of €17 million. Previously, he was CTO of FeedHenry, a mobile application platform provider that was acquired by RedHat for €63.5m in 2014. For several years, Richard has been an active member and influencer of the open source software (OSS) community. He is the creator and maintainer of senecajs.org, a microservices framework for Node.js. Richard is also the host of the monthly Dublin Microservices meetup in Ireland. Richard writes a weekly column in the Irish Independent newspaper. His latest book, The Tao of Microservices, was published by Manning in 2018.

Together, we talked about how detours sometimes do lead you exactly where you need to be. We touched on learning software engineering with Python before jumping onto the crazy Javascript Bandwaggon. And we finally discussed a different way of looking at microservices.
