Top Quotes  

  • 💡 “I’m surprised it’s taken so long. Because I mean, the reality is if you’re in a plan, and the plan doesn’t require any changes, then there’s been no drift. So what was the obstacle in delivering this as a feature sooner?”
  • 💡 “Not only they’re training their own machine learning models, but they’re also generating code. Not concerned at all.”
