Q & A with Seth

Q: What made you want to speak at Into The Box 2014? 
A: It is always nice for me to have an opportunity to spread the word about any of the *Box products. I have always been impressed with the companies that support their development and the product that result from these efforts. The world needs to know and I will do my part to help in that cause!

Q: What does web development mean to you?
A: Since the first time I loaded a web page that I had created I knew I was doing something I loved. It is fulfilling for me to create something that will solve a business problem for a client and to see their gratitude as they use the product. It is such of an ever changing landscape which makes every day new and exciting.

Q: Anything you want to experience during the conference? 
A: It is always the highlight to see fellow developers that we have talked to via our interactions throughout the year. The talent of those developers is fun to experience as they present on their respective areas of expertise. The *Box products are numerous and always undergoing changes...I like to find those things I have been missing or have yet to implement.

Q: What advice would you give to your younger self, knowing what you know now?
A: Learn, learn, and keep learning. Oh and by the way, that Netflix like product you had created with the web development class you were teaching...go with that idea...it just might work.

Q: Anything you want to experience during the conference?
A: I am interested in Pete Freitag and Brad Wood’s “Securing Your Box Applications” session because this is ever changing and no doubt something that can always be done better. The “Meet The Family: WireBox, CacheBox, LogBox, & TestBox” should be informative and definitely entertaining as a result of the crew presenting. Lastly, because of its recent addition to the Box family I am excited to see [the] “An Introduction to Behavior-Driven Development (with TestBox)” session.
