This weeks participant is Lydia aka @TheAvoCoder
Onto the Q&A:
- Before we get started with the tech questions lets talk about your username 🙂 Explanation please 😉
Haha, when I first started this account I really wanted to focus on the importance of being healthy while being a programmer! After a brainstorm session we got to ‘avocoder’, a combination of avocado and coder. Even though… I actually don’t like avocados… oops
- Favorite application phone &/or desktop ?
Spotify! I listen to music pretty much all day long, and Spotify makes it so easy for its users to find the right songs and lets you know more about the artist, lyrics, etc.
- Favorite tech item: iPhone
- Most frequented website ?
Weather.com and CodeWars
- Must have device ?
I don’t know if it’s a must have but I love both my macbooks
- Must have software ?
Atom, GitKraken, Insomnia, Slack
- Favorite OS phone
- How were you introduced to programming ?
My family has always worked with cybersecurity, so he is a programmer. When I was a kid we often coded games together in python, which was fun! I just had no idea that it was ‘coding’.
- What editor do you use ?
- Go to snack when coding
I can’t really eat when I’m coding weirdly, but during my breaks I go for fruit
- Track-pad or mouse ?
Track-pad. Haven’t used a mouse for like 6 years.
- Touch or mechanical keyboard ? Touch
- Standing or sitting desk ? Sitting.. I’m lazy
- Coffee / tea / soda / water ?
Coffee and sparkling water is my life
- Chrome or Firefox ? Chrome
- Music or silence ?
Music when coding, silence when writing
- eBooks or text books ?
Text books. I want to feel how many pages I still have to read haha.
- Video or documentation ?
Documentation! I feel like videos are always too subjective, which can be quite chaotic. Documentation is (most often) very straightforward and much easier to understand for me
