Hello Readers, 

The fifth edition of YourStory's Future of Work 2022 conference has come to an end. Over the past two days, the virtual summit saw the best minds in technology, product, and design talk about how the future of work for the next generation of workforce will look like.

On the grand finale, Prashant Malik, the co-creator of distributed database management system Apache Cassandra, spoke about building Cassandara, the core system that powers Meta, Instagram, and Netflix.

"Nothing like that ever existed, and we didn’t know if it was even manageable and if it could work. But we also knew in our gut it was something new and different. And could change the way we operate, and that is what today Web 3.0 can do,” he said.

Sanjeev Barnwal, Founder and CTO of social commerce startup Meesho, talked about how digital adoption induced by the pandemic has changed ecommerce, and how the unicorn is leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and other technologies to enable consumers to interact with the products.

YourStory also launched 'Top 30 CTOs' report to put the spotlight on tech leaders who have been instrumental in building unique, impactful and differentiated products. The list includes individuals who have built products from scratch, added newer layers of technology, steered phenomenal tech research, and displayed extraordinary tech talent.
