After introducing all other team members, be curious to get to know Felix, frontend developer at cloud solutions. Felix is 30 years old, comes from Stuttgart but lives in Berlin, as he loves the city's diversity.
How and when was your first contact with cloud solutions? How and why did you start working for cloud solutions?
First contact was at the beginning of 2014 via stackoverflow careers, when I replied to a part-time job announcement from cloud solutions. Some days later, we had our first Skype interview, which was very good. We had a nice talk and a lot of fun. That was one main reason why I started working for cloud solutions, because I really like my colleagues. And the job allows me to use recent best practices and to try out new tools and techniques. In addition, the part-time job helps me to stay flexible and allows me to work on other projects as well.
What was your most interesting project you have been working on in your time with cloud solutions?
The most interesting project I have been working on, is the (currently ongoing) development of the Surveylab web service, as this is a huge project in which I can really learn a lot: From planning and prototyping to deciding which techniques and frameworks to use or how the database connection to the current Surveylab project works. But this also means that things have to be re-thought more than one time, and sometimes you have to start all over again - it never gets boring.
Why has 2014 been such a successful year for you?
2014 has been such a successful year for me, because I finished my Bachelors' degree in computer science, started being self-employed, started working for cloud solutions and moved to Berlin.
Were there many new challenges you faced in your working life this past year?
What projects are you engaged into in your leisure time?
What are your personal goals for the year 2015?
The usual: do more sports and stop smoking (again :D).
