Learn how to break free from obvious solutions and engage new ways of thinking. #UX #Innovation http://thght.works/1sfBpGX

Part two of my interview with Adrian Cockcroft covers Adrian's early interests in just learning how things work and where that lead him and his career. Plus he has some insights about cloud computing, hot topics such as Go, Docker and Clojure…and a lot more. Here's part one for reference.
