I first met Patrick Pissang in a huge conference room in Frankfurt.
Him: pitching enterprise integration software Mulesoft. Me: potential buyer in the audience, watching his demo. Lovely-nerdy tech stuff, wrapped in a creative vision.
Went to speak to him afterwards. “Sorry, I don’t use business cards anymore. But let’s connect on LinkedIn.” 🙂
That’s about five years ago.
Today, Patrick works as Science Fiction author, SE Coach and Trainer. His work: lovely-nerdy, wrapped in a creative vision. He influenced and encouraged me to join the realm of solutions engineering coaches a year ago.
Meanwhile, I dismissed my business card as well.
His newest project is a marketecture of the SE world on a beautiful Lord of the Rings styled map.
Of course: lovely-nerdy, wrapped in a creative vision.
