This time, I have the honor to talk to Peter Grosskopf, CTO of Börse Stuttgart digital exchange and former CTO of Solarisbank. He's an amazing guy for philosophical discussions around finance, tech and we share one love that is no longer as cool as it was in the 00's: Ruby on Rails!

This time we discuss:

  • How he made regulations his hobby 👓 and wants developers to feel like working for Spotify or Soundcloud even with regulations in place
  • The do's and don'ts in Fintech
  • Why he rather picks mature stacks (aka Postgres and Ruby on rails) against the "new kids on the block"
  • How he thinks about new things tech like Apache Kafka

Thanks again for being my guest, it was a lot of fun.
