I am back with 6th episode of Uncut & Unedited. In this episode i interview Joel Semeniuk, Executive Vice President, Team Productivity division, Telerik.

I must thank my friend Stephen Forte, Chief Strategy Officer, Telerik for making sure that I get to interview Joel. Both Stephen and Joel were busy with their schedule at GIDS with looking after their booth and also presenting at the conference. In spite of that, Joel managed to give me 10 minutes and we did this interview sitting on stairs of some stair case. I did had an interruption in between as somebody just walked right in to our interview. You will see a jump in the video at the last question. As usual my 5 questions to Joel were:
