The fast-paced advancement in technology has created a crop of creative and knowledgeable IT specialists who are changing the world. One such person is Eric Pulier. From his Linked in profile, he is an alumna of Teaneck High School (1980-1984) and Harvard University (1984-1988).
Eric discovered his passion while he was in fourth-grade through computer programming. He had developed his database computer company by the time he was joining the university, and this has pushed him to come up with an innovative software.
Eric is also multi-talented. While at Harvard University, he served as the editor of the school’s daily, Harvard Crimson which was his first step in being a published author. He is also a public speaker and a philanthropist.
One of Pulier’s startups is Xprize which is an application that encourages teens and adults to actualize their goals by rewarding their success. He also formed Service Oriented Architecture software and acquired other like- minded companies to be able to operate in a wider scope. He later sold the company to Rogue Ware.
Eric Pullier also came up with a social media platform for children suffering from chronic diseases to help them mingle and network amongst themselves. He was also involved in a great course with President Bill Clinton’s Foundation, Clinton Foundation to create affordable cloud computing platforms for the less fortunate.
Eric’s innovations are helping people to solve problems they encounter in their daily lives. He insists that there is untapped potential in technology. Experts need to apply their knowledge to improve lives. The Internet of Things is also revolutionizing the way we do business and relate. With people all over the world connecting, the world has become a small space where anyone who develops a software that makes life easier could reap a fortune. These software’s should be easy to use and available like what Eric came up with.
The future of the use of creative software developers is bright students and professionals are encouraged to concentrate on the practical application of what they study in class as early as possible. Eric’s life proves that the level of education should not limit a person’s ability to come up with life-saving ideas.
