Thank you for listening to the Leaders, Innovators and Big Ideas podcast, supported by Rainforest Alberta. The podcast that highlights those people who are contributing to and/or supporting the innovation ecosystem in Alberta.
Host: Al Del Degan I have been involved in software development for more than 25 years. I have started companies, lead companies and worked for companies - doing many different things. I am honored to be considered a leader in Alberta's innovation ecosystem, and I give back as much, and often as I can. When I am not working or podcasting, you will find me pursuing my passions of photography, crypto investing, and wood working along with the occasional round of golf.
Guest: Diego Gomez is adventure and challenge driven. He has always enjoyed having the ability to make his own path, listen to others, make mistakes and continually grow.
Diego enjoys doing different and interesting things in his life, such us backpacking or tree planting, as well as sports at professional and also recreational levels. From working in regular 9-5 jobs to taking the occasional training course, up to his recent software development bootcamp, he has always strived to get as much as possible from the opportunity at hand, perform to the best of his ability and enjoy every second of it.
Now at 26, he can't wait to gain valuable experience in the tech industry to further improve himself and learn things that today he doesn't know he will learn... just yet.

"I think I've been somebody who has always looked for this sort of support from the government and agencies, because not only they're there for you to, use and take advantage of, but at the same time, you're there for a reason. And I feel like they're there for the opportunity."
