If you don’t like boats and airplanes, you’d better not live on an island, right? Well, this developer disagrees. Xavier lives on Madeira – an island of flowers, banana plantations and recently famous for erecting a statue of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo that barely even resembles its model. Xavier may be one of the seniors at madewithlove, but he’s still driven by a hunger for all things new and he loves building modern applications on solid grounds. From time to time, he will trade in this solid ground for some diving to explore the ocean’s wonders. Perhaps this could also be interpreted as an attempt to escape the island?
Q: What’s your favourite time of day?
Late at night, when everyone else is asleep. You have all night and the opportunities seem endless!
Q: What was the first thing you bought with your own money?
With cash from my first job, I got a Sony MiniDisc player. It was a pretty cool thing, at the time :-).
