After last week’s introduction of the support team (available here) this time around, the Development team get their chance to say hello!
We know the development team are often hidden away and unable to introduce themselves to you as customers whilst they concentrate on improving the product, so here they are!!
In order to get to know our diligent developers a little better and in the fitting sporty spirit of Cap2 we asked: If the gang could have been professional athletes, which sport would they have picked!?
Patrick Van Den Hurk
‘Being Dutch, you might expect my athletic prowess to come from the world of bicycles. But that sounds like far too much hard-work! I’d choose Archery if I could compete in any sport; having to concentrate on the target is something I would be able to carry through from my work ‘
‘I’m quite well known for my love of a good suit here at Cap2. If I had any sort of hand-eye coordination, I wouldn’t have minded going into Snooker; more for the very suave clothing that they wear than any real talent in the shot making department!! ‘
‘If I had the chance to be a professional athlete I would have been a marathon runner. I take part in marathons in my spare time, but I’m not quite as quick as Mo Farah! I’m not particularly fast but I do have a lot of energy and stamina, enough that I once ran 40 miles around the Isle of Wight in a day!’
‘For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a professional footballer. I played in a semi-professional team when I was a teenager, but after some time I started playing with computers more, then coding, so I gave up football almost completely. I still enjoy playing football occasionally but computing is my passion!’
‘I quite like the look of roller derby. Thundering around a track, taking people out, seems like an ideal way to de-stress. Not too sure about the outfits though!’
Cap2 GM Daniel Haywood gives the development team some well earned plaudits.
‘Being in the development team at Cap2 is an exciting role. It’s a bit like paddling the wrong way up a river, no matter how much work you do, there’s always going to be new ideas and more to create, but that’s half the fun! The team do an extraordinary amount of work ensuring we keep CoursePro incredibly secure and safe to host all of your data. The team are constantly developing and improving CoursePro, the product is always evolving so their work is pivotal. ‘
