Delivering Answers to Your Biggest Questions
Bernardo Castilho, Chief Technology Officer
Bernardo Castilho  

While I'm not in a position to share with you the meaning of life or anything along those lines, I am interested in understanding your current software development role. What is the biggest problem that you face? Is it technology, complexity within management, limited budgets, or projects failing to meet business needs?

You may experience one or several of these problems, and I want to know the one that keeps you up at night, the one that is always on your mind. I've been there, and I know the feeling.

From your feedback, my goal is to identify the overarching problem many of you are facing and then deliver my perspective on a solution to the problem. So how do we get started? Please email with details on your perplexity and any actions you have taken that have not been successful. Together we can answer these deeper questions and share with fellow developers that may be in similar situations.
