How did you end up in IT? I’ve been passionate about solving problems since I was a child. My career in the business world has just begun; I’m now a young apprentice programmer who creates application solutions on vb.net., and I hope to create functional software for the IBM Power Systems* platform in the future.
What trends are affecting your work? My work has been influenced mainly by the PHP language, and I’m starting to learn how to develop application solutions for the web.
What’s your favorite part about learning the IBM i platform? What I love about the study of the IBM i platform is the flexibility of development, starting from RPG, and external languages, such as Microsoft’s .NET platform, can be used to create powerful management applications. The workhorse of the platform is the powerful Db2* relational database, with which you can manage data securely.
Who’s been your greatest mentor? My best mentor is my father. With him, I was lucky enough to get to know the IBM i platform and the powerful RPG programming language. Thanks to him, I had a passion about computer science.
What’s been your biggest accomplishment? I’m most proud of being featured in the IBM Fresh Faces supplement of IBM Systems magazine, Power Systems.
What’s your favorite activity outside of work? The activity that I love more than IT is cycling. I love going out with my bike to relax.
What’s the geekiest thing you’ve ever owned? The most beautiful thing I’ve ever owned is my IBM System i5.
What superpower do you wish you had? Instead of a superpower, what I’d like to find is a group of people to share my knowledge with. For me, a superpower is the ability and freedom of every person to express their knowledge and their ideas.
What do you think is next for the IT industry? Predicting what’s happening in the IT world is very difficult. But of one thing I am sure: The Power Systems platform adapts to everything that happens. What I personally expect is the advent of Industry 4.0 all over the world and to see human and machine interaction to optimize work and reduce costs and production times.
