Christian Heilmann - Pecha Kucha Night, Tokyo, Japan 09/11/2009
I am Chris and my job is to make developers happy.
I travel the world talking to people about simple solutions to big problems.
And I love my job.
To me, the web is not about sites and code.
It is about information - data.
The web is full of great information and tools that help us deal with information.
All we need is a simple way to reach that information.
And remix it.
Once we have the data we can build great interfaces that help everyone to consume that data.
All this needs passion.
And collaboration.
When we all - world-wide - work together towards the same goals, our job is easy.
This means re-using what other people have done.
This is not cheating - on the contrary, it is a cleverer way of dealing with a problem that we all
have.
Using systems that have proven to work means they can be constantly upgraded and secured.
Working together on systems that by make it easier and more secure to use our products
protects our users.
So before you build something, look around what was already done and can be re-used.
If you build something, give it out for free.
You will reach more people like you and get feedback on improvements that you had no idea
about.
Together we can build the future, each on our own all we can do is create a nice present.
C h e e r s !
