Ask a CTO: Interview with Martin Kleppe on Honeypot
Honeypot is a job platform, linking tech talent with approved companies. On their blog, the team features the coder scene in Germany. In an interview with Emma Tracey, Co-Founder at Honeypot, Martin Kleppe, Head of Development at Ubilabs, talks about our core business and how are projects organized at Ubilabs.
Here is an abstract of the interview:
Emma: What are the key skills of developers working on interactive maps?
Martin: We work on quite complex technology, which is frequently very new. You don’t need to be someone with a computer science degree but you should be curious and passionate. You have to have a good way to structure your work and a feeling for how to make code easy to understand and manage for others. Good visual sensibilities are also essential because maps are so visual: colour, typography, how to use lines and stuff like this is all very important.
Ubilabs is continuously trying and testing new technologies. What technologies excite you at the moment?
What excites you about the future of maps?
There is so much going on with interactive maps in the browser, so many different levels coming together. You can really pack a lot of information into a map. There are so many new technologies emerging every day.
