Episode 38 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Pariss Athena, Creator of #BlackTechTwitter & Founder of the @BTPipeline platform, a community for people of color to mentor each other and find work.
In this episode Trent Lapinski interviews Pariss Athena, Front end Dev/RN dev, creator of #BlackTechTwitter & founder of @BTPipeline platform, a community for people of color to mentor each other and find work.
"It's scary. I even think about that for Web Development, because of things like Squarespace and Wix, where people don't even need to know how to code where they could just build their website from there. Are they going to automate that? Are people just going to be able to customize their websites exactly as need be without web developers? And it's like, okay in that case, you have to be the one to produce something like a Wix or a Squarespace ”
"I thought coding was going to be super difficult, but it's not, it's actually very artistic. Anyone can do it."
"This type of system makes people stuck. I'm trying to phrase that the way I want to say it, but you're kind of stuck. It's like, weighing your options, you're not going to get what you want, you're just choosing between what you can actually afford. It's holding everyone back, and this is why I worry for black people coming from lower income communities. Another thing is, they're not even aware that they can actually come into this industry that way. They don't know that, because they don't have exposure to it, because they don't have resources, and without resources you're just not aware. And that's the other thing that's frightening." - Pariss Athena

In this episode Trent Lapinski interviews Christina Warren from Microsoft, who is a former journalist from Mashable and Gizmodo. You get to learn about journalism, fake news, and what’s happening in the big tech companies.
“This is what the news media struggles with, is that people don’t trust them, even though very often the mainstream media, in my opinion, isn’t out to mislead people and push an agenda. I think most working reporters are out to report the truth.”
“Microsoft is evolving and understands that it is not the past anymore. We ultimately want to build tools that developers can use regardless of what platform you’re on.” — Christina Warren

In this episode Trent Lapinski and Tor Bair discuss privacy, blockchain, the problems with the centralized tech industry, security, and data science.
“I don’t want to get too much into why truth is broken right now in the tech space, that’s a whole other can of worms, but I think we can all appreciate that it is getting harder and harder to know what is trustable.”
“The moment we start believing there is no other way, then it is just a race to the bottom. There will only be two companies in the World, and that’s if we’re lucky. There may only be one.”
“We have to be building a movement at the same time we’re building the technology. I think we need to be funding these kinds of solutions like this is the apocalypse event for the Internet.” —Tor Bair

In this episode Trent Lapinski and Julian Moncada discuss emerging technologies such as blockchain, augmented reality, virtual reality, to artificial intelligence.
“I think that is really important that if you’re a hacker or developer that you balance the excitement you have around a new technology, around a new potential problem to solve, with the opportunity in the market and building a sustainable business.”
“If you build one without the other, if you have a great business plan, or you have some amazing idea but its not feasible, technically you’re not going to get very far.”
“I also think the inverse is true, you can build amazing tech, but if you haven’t thought through the market for it, or the value proposition it offers. Whether its a market we’re use to or whether it is a completely new market that doesn’t mimic anything today, if you had to make a call on that side of your business that can be very challenging as well.” —Julian Moncada

“These things that we have now, they are still in their earliest phase. We barely understand them. They are going to evolve into something so mind boggling different from what we have today.”
“We have to look to each structure, and abstract out the things that work and create new mitigation systems that solve the problems of the existing ones, and when we make the next iteration we stand on the shoulders of giants.” — Daniel Jeffries
