Today, he's an Android developer at dotlearn.io who has worked on over 50 apps and currently works for an MIT startup. He chats with Scott about the Nigerian mobile market, how feature phones work, and where Android is headed.

      Revolutionizing remote pair programming with Live Share


      We all remember when we first saw Etherpad or Google Docs and could type in an online document while another remote person typed in the same doc. It's magic! Fast forward and soon we can share entire code workspaces and debugging sessions using languages and frameworks that aren't even installed on our machines? Scott talks to compiler nerd Amanda Silver about how Visual Studio's Live Share goes far beyond "text editor sharing" to something deeply technically interesting.
