Upgraded Talent

Introducing Junior Developer – Andy Butler

My next victim is our Junior Software Developer Andy Butler, born and raised in our local town of Oldham.

After meeting Andy, I wouldn’t have thought for a minute that he goes home every night to a farm. Situated in Newhey, the Butler family farm works around 300 cattle Andy has helped his Dad take care of the farm for most of his life, occasionally even getting behind the wheel of the tractor.

Andy’s taste in music is different from what I expected, he loves hip-hop rap from the likes of Eminem to 50 Cent, we will get a rap out of him at some point for sure!

Starting out here at Web Applications as an apprentice in September 2013, Andy worked alongside our software engineering teams, developing real projects for our clients. Andy worked extremely hard in his role as apprentice. His commitment and enthusiasm paid off, and he was offered a full-time role as a Junior Software Developer.

I asked Andy: if a genie granted him 3 wishes, what would he wish for?

  1. To be filthy rich
  2. Never age a day
  3. To be the next Arnold Schwarzenegger (Gym fanatic).
If I could be an animal, I would be a tiger as I’m a typical alpha male

Andy is a guy of many talents. He assured me that demonstrating his dance moves at the Webbie Christmas Party is his most embarrassing moment to date. See below (sorry Andy):

It’s great to know to a little more about our team member Andy. We’re looking forward to many more of his very interesting dance moves!
