It is not only my job, but also one of my passions.  I enjoy the work and the learning and solving difficult problems.  I like to satisfy my customers and product great software.   

Anything you want to experience during the conference?

Learning new things.  Lots of them.  

What advice would you give to your younger self, knowing what you know now?
