Igor Petrovski Interview
Our colleague Igor Petrovski is joining our one year Unlimited Coders Club. He is a backend developer and is part of the Skopje office team. To briefly describe him – he is smart, positive and a super cool co-worker.
1. Tell us the story of how you started working at the Unlimited Coders Company?
Well it's a pretty interesting and uncommon story for this industry. A common friend of mine and Bale introduced us. At that time I was mostly working as a freelancer, we met, had very great communication, found out that we share many things in common, and I was given a chance to prove my qualities at Unlimited Coders… One year later here we are :)
2. How did you first get involved in computer science?
Since I was a little kid (like 7-8 years old) when I got my first computer, I was very passionate about computers and the way they work, always wanting to go step ahead and try to peek behind the scenes about this magnificent technology. At that time I was really proud of myself when I managed to ‘hack’ the high score board and put my name at the top of the list of one game that was pretty much popular at that time, a game called arkanoid :). I kind of regret that I did not join the Web Development and IT industry earlier, but many things in life happen for a reason so I would like to believe that my time came approximately 3 years ago. When the moment clicked for me, I joined a web development academy, spent many many hours practicing, sharpening my skills, researching, learning and still learning (a reason plus that I love this job - you can never know it all), so I can provide better code and quality software.
3. What is your favorite programming language?
Even though I adopt php pretty fast and enjoy working with it, I would point to Ruby as my favorite programming language.
4. How would you describe your typical work day?
First, I have coffee and chat with my colleagues about solving task-specific problems. The assigned tasks are the inevitable central part of our daily routine at times accompanied by informal chatting.
5. Do you have a favorite video game?
I was at one point “addicted” to PUBG but haven’t played in a while, currently I am playing mostly sudoku.
6. Where do you see yourself professionally in five years?
Since I am working on my dream career I am pretty much convinced that my knowledge and experience will grow as time goes by and I see myself as a successful senior developer with many completed projects in my portfolio.
