TIKI Talk Episode 57 features the return of TIKI’s mobile lead, Ricardo Gonçalves!
Ricardo has logged tons of hard work behind the scenes for TIKI and is responsible for a gigantic chunk of the development resulting in TIKI’s core technology and product.
Join us as Ricardo talks about his role at TIKI, what he’s been working on, updates on his feelings about being a Brazilian developer, his desire to share knowledge, a special message for Portuguese speakers that Shane didn’t understand, living his dream life, feeling comfortable because of TIKI culture, the ups and downs of start-up life, tackling big responsibilities and challenges, and prepping for millions of TIKI users.
Shane’s audio got very messed up on this one, but Ricardo is crystal clear. Feel free to skip the Shane parts, he won’t be mad :)
