On this episode we talk to Simon Vrach­li­o­tis aka Simon­Swiss” from Tail­wind Labs about his wild jour­ney being a pri­ma­ry school teacher in the Swiss alps to surf­ing the waves in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia as a React devel­op­er at Thinkmill and then on to being employ­ee #2 at Tail­wind Labs.

We unwind the fas­ci­nat­ing tale of how Simon made the tran­si­tion from teacher to web devel­op­er, includ­ing excur­sions into Theme For­est, util­i­ty-first CSS like Tachyons & Tail­wind CSS, and devel­op­ing using Craft CMS.

Simon men­tions what he thinks are the keys to suc­cess in top­ics as var­ied as giv­ing pre­sen­ta­tions to fur­ther­ing your career, pub­lish­ing con­tent in blogs & on YourTube.

…and he also drops the bomb and announces his newest role, and the lat­est leg of his jour­ney: going full cir­cle and join­ing Tail­wind Labs!
