believes that good products will speak for themselves
asked: you outgoing company CTO has been a long time, look at the company’s point of view and view after retiring, and as CTO

Of course, the concern for the company is still the same.
I believe that a good product will speak, just experience the company’s new products, which products are sincere, which products have problems, I will soon be able to feel. From the news reports can also see the company’s progress, sometimes see some articles too soft, can see some teams in brush presence.
: if you find something wrong, what will you say to the product team now?
Tony: I just did not adapt to change when I left office, encountered a bad experience, directly to colleagues questioned a pass. I need to remind ourselves from time to time after leaving office should speak a little softer, but the character is often still speak very directly. Here by the way to the product team to apologize.
: is it a lot of pressure on your team,
