This is a new series I started, I’ll be featuring different #techygrammer [IG] or #techygrammer [articles] asking questions and sharing it with you guys !
This weeks participant is Nicholas aka @Fullsnack_Developer
A little about this guy:
Fullsnack Developer previously known as @nicholas.olsen101.
He shared pics of him coding with snacks and friends called him fullsnack developer
as supposed to the normal term full-stack developer, he took it to another level and
changed his username, started designing these cool wallpapers.
(I hope I remembered the story right 🙈)
I personally love it! I can see fullsnack being a huge brand for developer swag 😁
I hope you go ahead and try it buddy!
Onto the Q&A:
- Favorite application phone &/or desktop
That’s a hard call to make but I would probably have to say Adobe Illustrator, but Instagram, Spotify and Sublime Text are all extremely close.
- Favorite tech item
My Wireless Studio Beats. Nothing shuts the world off and helps me focus better! This is excluding my MacBook Pro which I assumed was obvious lol
- Most frequented website: Stack Overflow haha but Awwwards would be very close
- Must have device: My iPhone, hands down
- Favorite OS phone: I think 4. answered that haha
- Your dream tech ?
Four 4k monitors mounted connected to a fully loaded Mac Pro, Vortex Pok3r and Bose surround sound.
- Whats’s your motivation for programming ?
I love creating things. Ever since I was a kid I had a drive to build, create and make things. Anything from tree forts to painting pictures, I was making something. So when I was introduced to the tech world my imagination had no boundaries because all you needed was a computer. My motivation for programming is joy of creation.
- How did you get introduced into programming ?
I was an artist but knew it was incredibly hard to make it in the fine arts world. I was decent at using computers so I took interactive media development in college. One of the courses was creative programming and since then I couldn’t stop.
- What languages do you know ?
- What editor do you use ? Sublime Text 3 (Material Theme)
- Go to snack when coding ?
Haha well as this is Fullsnack Developer here… ALL SNACKS! But if I had to choose, I’d say Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips! However, Ritz are cheaper and also awesome so you’ll probably see me eating those more.
- Track-pad or mouse ?
Always mouse, magic mouse! The designer in me needs the control lol
- Touch or mechanical keyboard ? Mechanical all the way.
- Standing or sitting desk ?
I have the benefit of being able to do both thanks to my sit-stand mount! But at heart I’m a sitter.
- Coffee / tea / soda / water ?
Coffee for the mornings (lots) and Coke for the evenings
- Chrome or Firefox ?
Interestingly enough I started out always using Firefox but I’m all Chrome now.
- Music or silence ?
Oh if you know me tunes are constantly rolling! You can follow my playlists on my website fullsnackdeveloper.com/playlists! Every once and a while the silence is nice but for the most part tunes are being pumped!
- eBooks or text books ?
I love the feel of a real book when I’m reading.
- Video or documentation ?
That depends. If I’m learning a new library, always documentation. If I’m going through a tutorial then video for sure!
