On the DevJourney podcast, Tim Bourguignon asked me to talk about my career.


Mathias placed the start of his journey with both hands on a TRS-80 computer and no other games to play than a compiler and the BASIC language. But fast forward a few years, we spoke about his music studies, his work creating music for ads and movies, and how programming came back as a hobby, which finally took precedence. We then jumped with both feet into languages and modeling. We spent the rest of the interview talking about interactions and how models serve us programmers and help our domains innovate.
