What's your role?
My position as Jr. Full Stack Developer means that I'm working in the full development cycle in our application and will help to realize new features and fix issues. I'm also very much looking forward to learning and helping others improve as well as part of a company that fosters and continually strives for growth.
What is the secret to realizing a successful software project?
I think the biggest secret to success is not to disregard the planning stages of a project. It's always easy to get ahead of yourself during development and try to fix or create something without having an idea of all of the components of a workflow that affects; whether the project has been started already or not. It's important to plan and acknowledge these interactions so that your project development doesn't get stuck in a stack before it even gets close to completion.
What emerging technology or industry are you most interested in?
Reusable launch systems are the next big step for space travel that many front-running companies are working on introducing to mainstream spaceflight. I'm very intrigued by the development of orbital-class launch systems being worked on by SpaceX because success by their team of engineers will make this tech cheaper and more adoptable by space programs around the world which will lead to new frontiers of space exploration.
