What is the most difficult part of your job? But the most rewarding one?

Always working with bleeding edge technology means there’s little information one can simply find on the web, so a lot of sweat & tears but once the puzzle pieces are together, it is very rewarding being one of the first to get it working and then later on sharing the results with the world in talks and on social media.

Is there anything that you would change about your professional path?

Not much. Maybe I should have started earlier to produce podcasts.
