10 questions for Symplified founder and CTO Darren Platt

By , IDG News Service |  

I would say it's the engineering team I work with. They have all those qualities I mentioned. They're pragmatic and open-minded and obviously super intelligent and always coming up with great ideas. It's exciting to work with that team.

9. What do you do to unwind from a hectic day?

I like to go home and spend time with my family and take my kids out on hikes. I think that's the best one for me, is spending time with my kids. I also like mountain biking.

10. If you weren't doing this job, what would you be doing?

I think I'd be teaching computer technology to children. What I'd really try to teach kids to do is how to create information technology rather than just how to use it. They don't have to go off and be developers, but understanding how software is created will be a very valuable asset to anyone using computers.

And I'd really like to see us have better open-source software for education and I'd really like to get involved in that.
