One of our youngest team members - Alexandra Yovkova can charm you with her smile, intellect, and thirst for knowledge. Still being a student, but handling many more activities in her spare time when she is out of the office, makes her an incredible person.
Even though she is one of the youngest, she's a great developer too. Her ideas and recommendations might be useful to anyone. Get some inspiration from the interview with her:
My name is Alexandra. I am a 21 years old girl who is always seeking for good music, books, places and moments. I am currently a software engineering student at Sofia University and part of the HackSoft's team. I am a living creature, person, student, worker, couch potato, active hiker, craftsman, and some more depending on the situation. I love animals and staying in the woods.
I am at HackSoft because of the mutual respect, friendly atmosphere, knowledgeable colleagues, and interesting and dynamic projects.
I have a few hobbies – reading books, hiking, and doing craft-work. In my spare time, I like to make wood carvings and earrings, to draw or to learn to play the guitar.
Django and Github. Django gives many opportunities and out-of-the-box solutions for common problems on the web. I like it because it provides a solid basis for the overall idea of web development. Django is huge, and I am still discovering new things about it. On the other hand, Github is not just a place where you store your project's codebase but also a place to search for ideas, inspiration, and knowledge from people better than you.
"Make today the day you learn something new."
My notebook and pen – this way, I can arrange everything better than in my head.
"Long term thinking," "Mutual respect," "Get shit done attitude."
Daily.dev – it is a browser extension that recommends you articles based on your interests. Not to sound like advertising, but since I started using it, there is always something interesting when I open a new tab.
