1. What is your biggest achievement in your role at TVSquared?
The biggest achievement so far is having a feature I worked on go live on the site. Initially, it looked like a fairly simple problem, but grew more complex the further we dug into it. Being new to coding, it was a mammoth task to take on, but I worked hard and eventually got it completed. Now, companies around the world will be using it, and it’s a good feeling.
2. Is there an aspect of your role you’re particularly excited about right now?
In general, the continued learning that working at TVSquared offers. I’m using languages that I hadn’t trained in and I’m getting exposed to different parts of the codebase: frontend, backend, data, devops and how a software business actually operates in the real world. It’s all pretty interesting.
3. Why did you choose a career in Software Development?
I’ve always had a desire to build things and solve problems, which is why I trained to be an architect. Sadly, when I started working in the architecture profession, I realized I had no passion for it and knew I needed a change.
When I found CodeClan I realized that, with perseverance and hard work, software development could give me an unlimited opportunity to build interesting applications, to always learn and to solve problems on a daily basis.
4. What’s your favorite TV ad campaign?
The 1971 Coca-Cola “Hilltop” ad – “If I could teach the world to sing.” It was in a documentary about Coca-Cola that I watched recently and now I can’t forget the tune. Guess it worked!
5. After a busy day, how do you like to relax?
Hitting the gym and training for a 5k run.
