Director of Engineering, www.perservica.com:
The world’s cultural, economic, social and political memory is at risk. Preservica’s mission is to protect it.
Darren takes us on a fascinating tour of how to preserve (rather than just “copy”) digital memories and why, perhaps more than ever, this is so important for generations today and far in the future. We touch on fake news, tamper proofing and the importance of preservation for research and democracy.
Darren shares his views on the importance of being an engineer to innovation, trust in teams (give them a goal and leave them alone to get on with), the right tempo for releases, balancing features and architecture, problem solving & recruitment and much more.
Darren is a real gentlemen and this is a fascinating insight from an experienced leader into how the engineering team works in a young company with a formidable mission.
