By Hannah Worthing28th April 2021

What were you doing before you joined Inspiretec?

I was working as a Senior Software Engineer at Damstra Technology. They're an Australian company that provides workforce management solutions to mining companies.

What have you enjoyed about your first few weeks at Inspiretec?

I really liked that there were a lot of training materials available to get me up to speed and to give me an overview of what Inspiretec is all about. I also liked that there were topics on application security and mental health.

How do you keep your knowledge/skills up to date?

I usually watch new videos from the dotNet and Microsoft Visual Studio Youtube channels. I'm also subscribed to .NET newsletters, and the dotNet and csharp subreddits.

What is your favourite holiday destination and why?

Anywhere that's near the ocean. There's just this calmness that I get from the breeze and the water that helps me unwind.

Do you have any hobbies? How do you like to relax?

I play poker, video games, and tabletop games. Usually with friends on my leisure time. On a Friday night, you'll find me out with friends/co-workers enjoying a glass of craft beer.
