To mark the anniversary, Computer Weekly Open Source Insider spoke to Pluralsight authors Cory House and Jonathan Mills to assess where the technology has progressed to over the years and what kinds of developments we can reasonably expect next.
First up it’s Cory House who lives in Kansas City, principal consultant at reactjsconsulting, where he helps companies transition to React. Cory has trained over 10,000 software developers at events and businesses worldwide and is a seven-time Microsoft MVP and regular conference speaker.
Now to Jonathan Mills, also from Kansas. Mills is a Pluralsight author, technology advisor and a member of the chief digital advisory team at World Wide Technology. As a dedicated developer community leader, Mills serves on the board of directors for the Kansas City Developers Conference, is a Microsoft MVP and a regular speaker and keynote presenter at conferences around the globe.
Mills: For the vast majority of my career I have been a backend developer in the .Net and Java space. But as the ecosystems grew and the sheer weight of projects increased, I found myself looking for alternatives that would let me solve business problems faster. I made the transition to Node and AngularJS a while ago and have never looked back. The speed and reliability of the tooling is something I really enjoy.
