30. Oh My Posh, Windows Phone & building an open culture - with Jan de Dobbeleer

Our friend in this episode is Jan de Dobbeleer, a Microsoft MVP, GitKraken Ambassador and creator of Oh My Posh.  We talk about how Oh My Posh - the prompt theming engine for PowerShell and beyond - started and became so popular. What are some of the daily challenges he faces? And how did he end up here after being a watchmaker, Android phone hacker and Windows Phone developer? Furthermore, we stress the importance of building an open culture; pushing open source, contributing and having a holistic mindset. And we end up venting about the Windows Phone, reminiscing over its great features and how it was ahead of its time.
