Martin Ramsin, a tech prodigy from Stockholm, has always been passionate about computers. From a young age, he knew he wanted to make a difference in the tech industry. His first job as a programming intern took him to San Francisco during the height of the internet bubble, where he learned valuable lessons about the industry. After moving to Berlin, Martin honed his skills in product management and decided to return to his roots in web development, teaching himself the latest technologies like Ruby on Rails.

Together with Raffaela, Martin co-founded CareerFoundry, an online tech school that empowers individuals to reach their full potential through education and training. They recognized the increasing skills gap in the tech industry and wanted to make a difference.

On Tech Talks Daily, Martin shares the story behind CareerFoundry and how it's addressing the skills gap by preparing individuals for the future. He also delves into how remote working is leveling the playing field for talent in developing nations and how online tech academies can open up new job opportunities.

Martin also explains why online tech schools offer better career prospects at a more affordable price and how flexible learning is working towards closing diversity gaps. He also discusses the link between reskilling and recessions and how the 2008 recession gave rise to the first tech Bootcamp, as macroeconomic headwinds forced workers to adapt.

Lastly, Martin explains the difference between upskilling and reskilling, with 54% of CareerFoundry students having zero experience in the field of their course.
