We would love to hear a bit about your work history?
My life followed roughly a square wave path between coding and music/entertainment:
- from 8 years old hacking on C64 basic
- from 15 rock guitar and recording studio
- from 23 Java consultant
- from 26 projectionist in cinemas, audio technician in national tv broadcasting, and photographer
- from 34 steadily restarded coding, firstly as freelancer on e-commerce and websites
Early adopter of the MEAN stack, I worked full-stack on different projects: geographic map based applications for automotive businesses, online sport gaming, and blockchain based authentication applications.
What do you love about what you do?
“I love it when a plan comes together” (John “Hannibal” Smith)
I love aiming at the realization of ideally crystal-shaped architectures and implementations and then, back down-to-earth, understanding which is the most efficient compromise to adopt. A well implemented system (and not one of “just make it work”) means happier coders – current and future – happy to work and expand it, and therefore happier and satisfied users. Furthermore, software is a means to implement human activities, so I, as a coder and a human, am happy when I can participate in the realization of some positive ones.
What are your interests outside of work?
Playing noisy improvised funk-rock with my band and with whoever wants to join the jam!
Where is your favourite place in the world, and why?
The whole our World is fantastic. If you look closely, you will see your home is fantastic too, take care of it.
