We’re pleased to announce that Catalin Pop has joined our team as a software engineer. Here’s a chance to meet Catalin through our now-standard questions. Want to know what Catalin recommends in Waterloo Region? Read on!
Why Software Development?
It just felt natural since I was already stuck to a computer from a young age and math was my most enjoyable class before starting my bachelor’s.
What kind of development do you like? Mobile? Web? Something else?
Web for sure. I have the most experience in it so I feel the most comfortable but I also spend most of my free time browsing the web on different types of WebApps.
Recommend one thing (maybe a book, movie, album, TV show, physical experience…) Why?
Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series is a must read if you’re a sci-fi fan. It is an epic adventure spanning multiple generations of characters and begins with the start of the decay of the galactic human empire. It explores many existential and social issues that are still very relevant in today’s society.
What’s your favourite new (or old) discovery in Waterloo Region?
Smile Tiger Coffee Roasters. If you like a super chill atmosphere with on site roasted coffee then it’s the place for you.
Share a cool thing that folks might like to know about you.
I used to do karate when I was younger and then later assisted and instructed the younger generation. Karate is still synonymous with cool, right?
