We’re very happy that Jonathan Faber has joined us for a co-op position here at Zeitspace. Jonathan is a Computer Science student at the University of Guelph. Here are his answers to our now-standard questions for the blog!
Why software development?
I would say that what I enjoy the most about software development is the problem solving. I like problem solving due to that “aha” moment when the pieces of the puzzle suddenly fit together. When I was young I loved solving problems with math but after taking my first computer science course in high school I knew that software development was what I wanted to do.
What kind of development do you like? Mobile? Web? Something else?
My favourite course in university was micro-computers. In this course we did a lot of programming in assembly and it allowed me to better understand from where higher level languages stem. Most of my experience is in client-side desktop applications, which I really enjoy. I am excited to learn more types of development and hope that I like them just as much!
Recommend one thing (maybe a book, movie, album, TV show, physical experience…) Why?
I would have to recommend Pink Floyd for their unique style of music. They are the band that got me interested in discovering my own tastes in music.
What’s your favourite new (or old) discovery in Waterloo Region?
Bubble tea. I really like the feel of tapioca balls.
Share a cool thing that folks might like to know about you?
I love exercise!
