Master your tools
Monarch Wadia is our guest, and he is challenged with the heuristic “Master your tools” from the Xebia Essentials repository (https://essentials.xebia.com/master-your-tools/). Monarch gives a different perspective to master the tools, which stems from his experience as a Bootcamp organiser. We discuss the differences between colleague and Bootcamp education and how the education paradigm shifts, at least with our industry. It was the start to go down the rabbit hole on how technology influences our culture and how we, humans, are changing our interaction patterns.
Monarch goes off script and recommends that we should decondition rather than discuss what we already know.
Monarch Wadia (@monarchwadia) proudly identifies as a self-taught developer. He sees software programming as a democratic industry that welcomes everyone who seeks to enter it with open arms, provided they’re willing to put in the hard work needed to learn the ropes.
He has led teams of more than 100 software engineers as a software architect, is the founder of two startups, and has nearly 10 years of experience in the industry. As Mintbean’s CEO, he enjoys creating mentorship and career opportunities for newer web developers.
