The full interview is available on the Tech Behemoths website, but here’s an intro piece:
Hi Olga, welcome to TechBehemoths! Please tell us a little about yourself. Your background and how did you come to this point?
My name is Olga. I have more than ten years of experience in software development as well as a Ph.D. in Computer science. I can easily say that IT is in my blood and it was pretty much my predestined path since early childhood because my father was one of the very first developers. The difference between us is that I get to work on a laptop and he wrote code for those huge computers that took up the space of a small apartment.
The topics covered in the interview:
- When and how did you start your business? Is there an interesting story here?
- What do you think you’d be doing right now if your business didn’t exist?
- What’s your technique for staying productive throughout the day?
- How do you define “being successful”?
- What do you like to do when you’re not working?
- What are your recommendations for a business or developer novice?
