I waited for my first public conference presentation until the year all of these had to shut down. Great timing… But Roar Media organized their Digital Transformation Conference virtually and invited me to talk about the generation gap in the tech world.

Abstract: Those who once identified with the rebellion around Rock’n’Roll or Punk Rock, are suddenly perceived as the establishment by Millennials and Digital Natives. The bad news is: No, it’s not just your peers, it’s also you. The good news is: This is not a new thing and there are ways to handle it. 

Watch the full presentation on YouTube.

The whole part with me lasts for about 45 minutes, including the Q&A after the presentation. Watch it here on YouTube.

Let me know your thoughts about it. Where do you disagree? How did you face the generation gap in your professional career?

Being a team requires getting to know each other as human beings. That I already knew.

What I learned from you is that the history of technology is way more impactful than we think. It’s more than cool stuff that we can do. It defines how we understand the world around us. Therefore understanding generation differences(with taking the risk of generalization into account) might help us to understand who our team members are better.

Thanks for this nice talk, Karsten 🙂
