1) Who are you?
My name is David, most people call me Dave, I don't really have a preference. Other names people have given me are DL simply D. I'm generally a very quiet person, I listen more than I talk. Outside work, I like to enjoy a quiet evening of gaming. I also like to keep active so I'm usually working out at the Richmond Oval every other day and throw in some Ultimate during the summer. During winters I try to go boarding up at Whistler any chance I have. I ride a 08/09 Never Summer System board with 2012 K2 Cinch CTX bindings.
2) What is your role at Appnovation and what does it entail? What does a typical day in the office look like for you?
I'm a developer here at Appnovation. Generally this means I help solve business problems and build solutions. A typical day for me consists of daily scrums with clients, working with and assisting team members and by the afternoon, hopefully focused on my tasks for the day. Every project is different. I'm mostly working on Drupal projects, but have also worked with SproutCore for mobile applications.
3) Where are you located? Where do you hail from originally?
I'm located at the Vancouver HQ. I was born in Vancouver, raised in RIchmond, so I make the trip into the office via Canada Line.
4) When did you join Appnovation?
I joined Appnovation back in 2007 when they just moved to the 2nd office with 2 small rooms and 8 desks. I was a contractor back then while I was working on my degree at BCIT.
5) Why do you do what you do? Why did you decide to join Appnovation?
Gaming has always been something I've loved to do. Console gaming became PC gaming and before I knew it, I was in BCIT for Computer Systems. After that, I was hooked on development.
During BCIT, a group of us met Arnold as a project sponsor. He asked Af to start the company with him, and being childhood friends with Af, I decided to join. Now I'm working with the group of friends I met at BCIT and a lot of other people along the way.
