Coding Has Become Pop Culture
But programming has not. And let me dive right into it.
A “Masterclass” is a new GGV program focused on a functional discipline (Engineering, Growth, Marketing, etc.), in which we’ll bring in domain experts who can share learnings, lessons, and best practices with members of the GGV community.
In 35+ years of programming I haven’t seen anything like the Java ecosystem for breadth, depth and achieving a good balance between stability and innovation. In general JS development has struck me as made by-and-for people with less serious grounding in software engineering (and yes, that a generalization and of course you’ll find proponents and practitioners who are enormously competent. Still.)
