#69 Rachel Roumeliotis, 2017 Technology Trends

Summary
Rachel Roumeliotis of O'Reilly Media spoke to me about technology and development trends for 2017.

Details
Who she is and what she does. Upcoming conferences, OSCON and Fluent. Rachel and I discuss tech trends for 2017: open source, the big players, can every company do it? Code is not the only value, customer lock-in. "All businesses are software businesses", how common is that perception, is dev over valued sometimes. "Infrastructure changes", very hard to keep up, big companies telling small companies that they are doing things wrong. "The year of AI" - again; AI silos, no overarching system. Keeping the customer in mind when working with tech.
