“What’s next?” – James Whittaker

James Whittaker of Microsoft gives a stimulating talk on how thinking about “what’s next?” is critical to sustained success. He posits that a brand new thing comes and revolutionizes everything every 10 years, and that technology matures over the preceding 10 years. It does make sense when you think about PC -> mobile -> cloud. He then talks about what he thinks the next big thing will be: machine learning + the concept of microservices in a purchase economy. In other words, the app store is dead! Just a brilliant talk!
