Everyone has their Egg Nog Lattes in hand, bundled up, and getting their bellies ready for all the festive feastings, we are still having just as much fun here at Harlo Interactive. Next in our series 'Digital Goodness: 20 Questions' is Rama Olson one of our Web Developers at Harlo. Quotes below are verbatim, so enjoy hearing our [sometimes too-real] voices. At least you know they're real!
What qualities and skills should a good website developer have?
Problem-solving, planning and organizational skills are essential for any good website developer as well as the ability to break a complex task into smaller, simplified bite-size pieces.
Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life?
What’s your favorite thing about your boss, and what’s your least favorite?
I plead the fifth… just kidding. My favorite thing is how much he cares about his employees and the company. My least favorite thing is when he doesn’t do his dishes.
How do you unplug?
I enjoy creating music and writing songs.
If a documentary was made about your life, what actor/actress would you want to play you?
What is your go-to dance move?
The sprinkler, or the truffle shuffle
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
I think most answers to this question would involve some kind of insect or exotic meat but since I’m a vegetarian this is gonna be pretty boring. Macaroni and cheese with salsa.
What were you like in high school?
I was pretty short and skinny. I only listened to hip-hop and went to high school halftime and community college half time.
When was the last time you were very nervous about doing something?
I went bungee jumping a while back and that first step was a little nerve-wracking.
Would you go to space if you were invited?
No way. Sounds awful. I would go in one of those free-fall planes though, that’d be a fun way to experience weightlessness.
Do you listen to music in nature?
No, when I go out in nature I like to experience the peacefulness.
What’s your favorite ’90s jam?
Tupac - Ambitionz Az A Ridah
What are the last 3 photos you took on your phone?
A dream vacation?
The Cook Islands. I love exotic beaches.
What inspires you most in your work?
Learning new coding techniques and methods.
What are the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made?
Best: I love my 2007 Prius. It’s saved me a fortune on gas and car maintenance.
Worst: A long time ago I used to deliver lost luggage from the airport and bought a used Dodge minivan so I could haul more but it was a lemon and broke down a lot. Spent a bunch of money getting it fixed and it also got terrible gas mileage.
What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
I enjoy listening to history podcasts. Recently I’ve been listening to one that covers the history of revolutions and so far it’s gone over the US, English, French, Haitian, and South American revolutions. Super interesting.
What are you afraid of?
Pretty much any wild creature that could bite or sting me. (Spiders, snakes, rats, raccoons, etc…)
How does Harlo Win the Hearts of its clients?
Through outstanding work and excellent customer service. We’re happy to go the extra mile for our clients to make sure they’re satisfied.
