Around the Qteam office in 10 questions – Matei Miron
It’s time for another another one of our awesome team members to introduce themselves. This time Around the Qteam office in 10 questions with Matei Miron.
1) What gets you out of bed in the morning?
I’m not really a morning person so I’m afraid I can’t relate to this :). However, every day I wake up, I imagine that one day I’ll have enough money and time to travel around the world.
2) What are the resources you use to keep up to date with the latest technologies and trends in the industry?
Besides the “Tabara de Testare” (The Testing Camp) events I attend (currently trying to improve my participation rate), I particularly enjoy experimenting with various automation frameworks found online.
3) What’s the last book you read?
“Good manners nowadays” by Aurelia Marinescu. I feel that everybody should read this book at least… TWICE!
4) What’s your favorite technology to work with and why?
I go with the popular options: Selenium, Appium mostly for the great communities they have. As a personal preference, I favor Java as a programming language as I feel it’s the programming language I have the most experience with.
5) Who’s your least favorite superhero?
All rich superheroes that can buy their superpowers (Batman, Iron Man, etc)
6) What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?
Work-related: automating complex scenarios that set up test data on multiple 3rd party platforms like Dropbox, Google Drive, and other file manager platforms.
Off-work: Participate and volunteer for the Down Syndrome Association: “Down Plus” on projects related to integration and arts.
7) As a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
I’ve always wanted to be a VET as I love animals, but almost failing my 1st year at the VET University made me realize that I should pursue my other dream: Computers – IT.
8) What’s the best advice you ever received as a software development professional?
Try to do the job perfectly the first time. If you fail, learn something from it. It will cost a lot more to fix further down the road.
9) What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I’ve set a room on fire to prove a point. ONCE.
10) Name a software development tool you work with which others might find useful?
For software development: IntelliJ. It’s a very powerful tool if you make use of all the shortcuts it offers.
For general day to day work, I feel that the Notes + Reminders apps bring a lot of value to someone as unorganized as I am.
