This week’s chat with the Mangos stars none other than one of our programmers, Ken Adachi.

Ken - programmer


SplitMango: Hi Ken! Could you please state your name for the record?

Ken: Sure thing. My Japanese name is Kensuke, but most of my friends call me Ken.

SplitMango: What’s your background in development?

Ken: I went to school and graduated with a degree in computer science, but I’d have to say that most of what I know just came from trying out new things on my home computer.

SplitMango: What drew you to development?

Ken: In high school I took a computer course that introduced me to Flash. Not as widely used anymore, but that summer I spent a lot of time developing games in ActionScript. Later I became interested in other programming languages which eventually led me to web development.

SplitMango: That Flash will get you everytime. So how long have you been working at SplitMango?

Ken: I’m on my fifth year at SplitMango now.

SplitMango: What’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not developing?

Ken: I enjoy playing hockey so if I’m not at the office you might find me on the ice.

Ice Rink


SplitMango: Very cool, literally. Sorry. Moving along, if there was one thing you could change about the Internet what would it be?

Ken: The Internet is changing so fast, I just wish that I could keep up with it.

SplitMango: Haha, totally! Thanks so much for chatting with us Ken.

Ken: You’re welcome.
