Justin Watts (@paladinmachina) – Program Manager at Google
Justin gives his take on the subject and also tells us about the wonderful, magical, mystical world of Google. While they don’t all have pots of gold next to their desks they do take naps in pods of course after eating free food all day. So in short – work for Google, never go hungry or sleep deprived. Sounds good, although for some reason nap pods became fighting words for Christa. Oh yes and he talks AV and law enforcement – you can only get this on AV Power Up!
Hope puts this one in a programming chokehold (she almost puts Alan in one too), Johnny’s all amped up by the biggest nerd rant in AVP history and Rich slams down the Hot Jobs. Nerds? Violence? Never figured this in a million years.
So if the AV industry wants to attract new high quality talent, it needs to treat programmers with respect, not neglect. If you want to treat a programmer with respect, Alan will thank you. If not, Hope and Johnny will fight you.
And after this if your AV programming still sucks, push play again (and again) until it doesn’t anymore.
