Meet Jason!

profile

What’s your role?

I am a software engineer and work primarily on mobile solutions specializing in full-stack android development and I also do a lot of work on the back-end cloud and administer our forum.

 

What’s your favourite part about working at UCIC?

Aside from working people who are really good at what they do, it’s the ability to have a direct impact on the products themselves. The sense of satisfaction that comes from taking an idea and turning it an actual solution from ground up.

What’s your favourite thing about the Ubi?

What I love about the Ubi is that it represents the future of simple and convenient computing. I mean a desktop/laptop/tablet/phone all have their uses but a voice activated computer brings new ideas and a new way of interacting with your environment.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like watching sports on TV. I am a very big hockey/baseball fan and will follow my Leafs and Blue Jays till… maybe the day I move. I love to build and tinker with tech gadgets and make software do new and fascinating things. I also enjoy auto mechanics and I’m a big car enthusiast.

What’s your biggest dream?

To create a product/service that is used by millions, also to make millions of dollars doing what I love to do.

What superpower would you like to have?

Teleportation, I’ve always wanted that, even as a kid.

Coffee or tea?

Coffee without question.

Pirates or Ninja’s?

Pirates because no one likes to pay for overpriced software.

Mac or PC?

PC because I’m used to it, it matters little in a Linux environment.

What was the last movie, TV show or book that left a strong impression?

I’d have to say The Matrix for it’s amazing perspectives and parallels to real life.
