Informally… Sal Niro!
Today I caught up with Sal Niro, Sr. Node.js Developer here at Informz. We talked about absurd YouTube videos, why he loves being a developer and what an ideal afternoon in San Francisco looks like.
What is your official title and what does your job entail?
I am a Sr. Node.js Developer and I have been with Informz since October 2016. My job entails tinkering in the product codebase with the goal of taking advantage of next generation capabilities.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of being a developer is making the ideas on whiteboards materialize into tangible things.
Describe the best vacation you ever took.
Last year I had the opportunity to visit San Francisco for a developer conference, and on the last day was able to enjoy the city however I wished. I spent the afternoon driving Highway 1 along the breathtaking coast up to Muir Woods National Monument where I could disconnect from daily distraction and hang out with the redwoods.
If you could stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
Sixteen! Take me back to a simpler time when having fun with friends seemed to be all that mattered.
What is your favorite TV show (or movie) of all time? Why?
Space Jam. I’m struggling to explain why – it was just a big deal at the time!
When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you pass the time?
If I happen to be at my computer, I’ll inevitably end up down the YouTube rabbit hole of suggested videos – usually consisting of prank videos, cat fails, and all the things people try doing with diet coke and mentos.
What does your perfect day look like?
Warm weather, no schedule, but with good company to figure it out with.
Thanks, Sal! Meet other members of the Informz team here.
