Sharing Our Developer Stories With The World
Once we had a critical mass, we decided to share these stories beyond just the Trello team. We’ve been featuring our developer stories on our engineering blog over the past two months using the hashtag #devstory.
Here are some snippets:
As a 13 year old, Engineer Fred Galoso dreamed of making it big as a heavy metal guitarist (don’t we all?). But he knew they would never reach superstardom without a high quality website. So he used the tips he got from PC Magazine in his local library to cobble together a totally rockin’ web 1.0 site (complete with graphics he cut out and scanned himself). The rest is history. No word yet on how the heavy metal guitar career panned out. Read Fred’s story
For Engineering Manager Kat Walser, her early interest in computer science didn’t exactly dictate a smooth ride into a career in software development. Instead, she stubbornly persisted amidst countless rounds of doubt from adults and teachers in her life, not to mention her limited access to a fledgling curriculum available to teach her. Kat attributes part of her success to her parent’s support, and also her unflappable stubbornness. Thank goodness for that, at least. Read Kat’s story
And then there’s Joe From Work, in his own words: “Some time in the early 90s my Dad bought a computer on the cheap from some college kid. It ran DOS Shell in a dark theme and the heading said "Welcome to hell." As an an elementary school kid, I thought this was very cool. Fast forward to middle school. My StarCraft guild website got hacked by a rival guild. I didn't know how somebody did hacking, but I was impressed and a little scared.” Read the rest of Joe’s story
Plus, there are many more to come! We’ll keep publishing them as we keep writing them and as new people join the team. But we’re not the only ones with stories to share. Everyone has a story! We’d love to hear yours. Tag us on Twitter (@trello) and use the hashtag #devstory.
