Origin Stories #8 - David Okun - Kitura

In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with David Okun of IBM and Kitura. We discuss how he got started as a kid building Geocities websites for Dragonball Z, and how he ended up as a developer evangelist for IBM working with the Kitura team helping bring Server Side Swift to the community. Be sure to stick around for the story of how he got his job at IBM and our discussion about luck being involved in everyone's journey. It's good stuff.

Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.
