Steve took us back to primary school, where he discovered computers in form of a BBC Micro. We brushed over his early days, and how he slowly made his way toward computers with the help of certifications. Steve explained how software development was a side activity for a very long time. We then discussed interviewing and the important help of his wife to help him to take a leap of faith (twice). We talked about getting started giving talks and being involved with communities and how this influenced his future career. And we finally explored how he ended up at Elastic.
