Wow, Carezone has turned into a fantastic app! I use it all the time with my family. Not only is it a good idea, but it's well written and bug free. Plus, it's free! In case you don't know, Carezone is Jonathan's startup, now several years old. You'll see Jonathan describe it in the interview. He says Facebook is for your friends and LinkedIn is for work, Carezone is for people you care for. It tracks your prescriptions and health related matters privately. The best thing about it is it's a centralized place to store all that info. So, for example, if you bring a new caregiver or doctor into the picture, you can just grant them access. Beats rooting through your purse or billfold looking through a bunch of notes.

"You don't find opportunities when you are looking for them, you find opportunites when you are making them."

At QCon New York 2018, Michael Bryzek discussed how to design microservice architectures “the right way”. Key takeaways included: engineers should design schema first for all APIs and events, as this allows the automated code generation of boilerplate code; and investment should be made in automation, such as deployment and dependency management.
