What better way to spend a sunny day then to chat with one of our Interactive Web Developers, so here we go!
SplitMango: Oh hi there Airrick. So just to start off our interview, what’s your name?
Airrick: David. Just kidding it’s Airrick.
SplitMango: What’s your background in design & development?
Airrick: I am huge nerd for both. I spend most of time in code, but that love started with design. Working both traditional and freelance before my formal education, I designed strong websites with usability in mind.
During my education at BCIT, I fell deeply in love with code. I loved turning designs into fast and functional websites.
SplitMango: What drew you to coding?
Airrick: Code is fascinating! It’s creative and rewarding.
Code excites me the same way that a good riddle or game does. There many ways to solve a problem. The magic is in choosing the best one!
It also has an amazing community surrounding it here in Vancouver.
SplitMango: It truly does! How long have you been working at SplitMango?
Airrick: I’ve been a proud mango since September 2014.
SplitMango: What’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not coding?
Airrick: Food! Coffee! Music! It’s really hard to choose.
You can find me on the evenings and weekends eating burritos at Budgies and sipping espresso at Elysian. We live in a wonderful city with so much awesome for a young foodie to eat and drink.
SplitMango: If there was one thing you could change about the Internet what would it be?
Airrick: Honestly? Trolls.
I really disagree with the “I really hate someone else and I am going make sure they know it” attitude. Meninists, Racists, Jerks and the rest of the scum and villainy! Bullies are the worst. I am all for conversation and discussion, but being mean sucks.
But at least there are a of lot cute pugs online!
SplitMango: Totally hear you. Pugs may be the best things out there. That and Chris Hadfield #obsessed.
Well, thanks for stopping by for a chat.
Airrick: My pleasure.
