The first real Spring day of 2017 is the day that our Senior Developer Mani is occupying the beloved Interview Couch. Mani translates his Icelandic coolness into perfectly pure & clean code. All day, every day. He’s our DJ Moon & is rarely seen without his Macbook.
I can’t go a day without
my MacBook, yes it sounds weird to be so attached to a piece of technology. I try to take it with me anywhere I go. As a coder, I sometimes get stuck on problems that have to be put aside if the right solution is not obvious. Somewhere along the day or a weekend the solution pops in my head and I can open up my laptop and work on the solution.
My favorite guilty pleasure movies/series are
Lethal weapon 1-4, 48 Hrs, Tango and Cash and just any “buddy cop” movie out there.
My secret superpower is
probably more antisocial then a superpower but at work I like to keep conversations short and to the point. I don’t see any advantage in long meetings, though they are sometimes unavoidable.
My favourite app is:
I don’t really have a favourite app but according to my iPhone I wasted the most amount of battery life on Strava and Reddit. I use Strava when I go for a run or biking on my racing bike. It keeps track of my performance. Reddit is just a time-wasting blackhole that no one should go near.
I like my coffee
as a double espresso at room temperature. So I like to wait about 30 minutes for the coffee to cool down before I drink it. Somehow tastes better.
