Quotes from Adam

We originally talked to computers in their language exclusively. Increasingly, we talk to them in ours.

Soon, developers will create new programs in collaboration with an artificial intelligence that does much of the heavy lifting. This shift represents the biggest leap forward in productivity and scalability yet.

The way humans program machines is changing too. Humans are no longer the only ones writing code.

Solving is the focus of the next interface battlefield which will be fought across web, mobile, and a wide internet of things.

We are about to witness the greatest leap in productivity in building and deploying software that we have ever seen.
