  • I wish to have a mother that familiarised with technology like Paul’s mother. Super cool talk as always guys. Lisa is fantastic as well.

    I tried to explain my mother couple of times what I do for living but for her is still something totally ununderstandable. She can get part of design because its quite similar to Windows Paint App (one of these that she is ok with) but when I’m starting about code part, thats like a story from different universe for my mommy.

    Looking forward to next one.
