NDC returned to Sydney this year and SSW TV was there alongside .NET Rocks! to catch all of the action with our Ask Me Anything! sessions.
As usual there were a host of top industry pros talking about various subjects related to software development. This year, SSW TV worked alongside .NET Rocks! to run an entire track of live interviews with some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.
In this AMA, SSW’s Brendan Richards asks Nicholas Blumhardt, CEO at Datalust, about a wide range of topics from open-source software and the history of Serilog, through to the future of SEQ and its new cross-platform, rust-based storage engine.
