Senior Developer Adrian Romero

We like to showcase the awesome people who work here at 729 Solutions because they are more than just great employees – they are creative and interesting people! This time Senior Developer Adrian joins Allegra to discuss his role here at 729 solutions, soccer, and philosophy. 

 

Tell Us About Yourself

Allegra: Can you start with a brief intro about yourself?

Adrian: Hi! My name is Adrian. I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with my girlfriend, Juli, and my little cat, Titania.

 

Allegra: What do you do here at 729Solutions?

Adrian: I’ve worked at 729 for over two years. I started working as a Developer and I’m working towards a Lead Developer role. I mainly do web development in Ruby or Node, but I’m always eager to learn and try new technologies and languages. I also like mobile development and DevOps work. I’ve been coding professionally for about 15 years.

 

Adrian Has Hobbies!

Allegra: Tell me about your love of soccer.

Adrian: Soccer is a big part of the Argentinian culture. I started taking soccer lessons when I was 6 – even so, I’ve never been good at it!  I’m a big fan of Boca Juniors, the most popular local soccer team. I try to play a match with my friends once per week.

 

Allegra: Do you play any other sports?

Adrian: No, but I do try and exercise from time to time. I like to run swim.

 

Allegra: Do you have any other hobbies outside of work that you want to share?

Adrian: I enjoy reading and traveling. I love Latin America and it’s diverse literacy.  As I travel through the continent I usually pick a couple of books by authors who are from my next destination and read them during my stay there. I’m also doing some research in machine learning and financial analysis.

 

Allegra: Do you enjoy cooking?

Adrian: Yes, definitely. I’m not a big fan of ordering food, so we try to cook at home. It’s great to take some time to relax.

 

Allegra: What is your favorite thing to cook?

Adrian: Argentinian asado (barbecue)! It’s kind of a ritual here, and a great opportunity to gather with friends or family.

 

Allegra: What is your favorite restaurant in the city/town you live in?

Adrian: I’m not sure if I can pick only one – but there’s a little Italian restaurant called Pinuccio in the neighborhood of Belgrano. They serve the best pasta I’ve ever had and the atmosphere is amazing.

 

And He Studies Philosophy

Allegra: What kind of philosophy do you study?

Adrian: A few years after finishing my computer science degree, I started getting curious about philosophy and the humanitarian side of problems.  It’s a contrast to the technical studies I completed before.  So I started down the philosophy path.  I like ancient philosophy, and also took a couple of Ancient Greek language courses.

 

Allegra: Are you into studying different philosophers specifically or different philosophical ideas?

Adrian: Not anyone specifically, but I’m particularly interested in how the ideas proposed by ancient philosophers (Plato or Aristotle for example) impact modern or contemporary philosophy. I really like how this is represented by authors like Nietzsche or Foucault.

 

Allegra: Anything else you want to tell the world about yourself or working at 729?

Adrian: I really enjoy working at 729, the team and culture are amazing. Thanks for having me here!
