Verdict UK have published my interview in their weekly CTO Talk series. There I shared some personal facts, answered question about my role at Postoplan and reflected on the present and the future of technology.
The beginning of the interview:
Eric Johansson: Tell us a bit about yourself – how did you end up in your current role?
Dmitry Kann: In 2008, I moved from Russia to the Netherlands and started a blog about my Dutch experiences at yktoo.com. There I also posted about a multitude of other things, including software development. At one point, it has attracted the attention of Alex Bozhin, CEO of Postoplan. The business was growing by leaps and bounds and he was in dire need of a CTO, so he invited me to become one.

I’ve basically followed every tech development ever since, from GW Basic to Kubernetes, blockchain and machine learning.Read in full on Verdict website
