You may have come across people advising you to build a "comb" shaped career. The thinking behind this advice goes as follows: start with a single area of deep specialization and then expand into a generalist view.  This "T" shaped career evolves into a "comb" shape over time as you gradually add deeper expertise in several areas.
Our guest, Tony Carrato, spent over 13 years at IBM working as an architect. Prior to that, he worked at AT&T focused on systems engineering and architecture. Today, Tony remains very active at the Open Group Security Forum and is also a board advisor at the Ortelius Open Source project, which is a part of the Continuous Delivery Foundation.
In this podcast, Tony shares his experience in building a comb shaped career.
