Ben's First Month at Pixel8

You might not be aware, but we’ve got a shiny, brand new web developer on the pixel8 team! Ben joined us at the beginning of the year, and we’re super impressed with all the work he’s been doing so far.

We usually try to put these blogs out after their first week, but we’ve had a busy start to January, so it’s taken a little time to pin this web development wizard down!

But once we did, we managed to ask him a few questions to help you all to get to know him a little better!


1. How has the first month at pixel8 been for you?

Really different but really interesting. I'm working on new things every day and learning a lot as I do them. It's a big change in atmosphere from my old place of work, but definitely one for the better.


2. What's been your favourite project so far?

The Brandit Global website redesign. I've really enjoyed turning such nice designs into a finished product.


3. Who is your techie hero/idol?

Gabe Newell for making half-life and pioneering digital games distribution when everyone else called it ridiculous. He is the reason I have no time to socialise.


4. What has been your biggest learning curve so far?

Learning Drupal from scratch has been difficult but interesting. I finally feel like I'm finding my feet with it.


5. Who's your favourite pixel8 employee?

Do I really have to choose a favourite?


6. What are you looking forwards to most in the next coming months at pixel8?

Developing on and improving Brandit and Storeit ready for their launch later in the year, and hopefully learning a lot on the way. And of course, ping pong every Friday (and hopefully beating Jim or Bob eventually).

Funnily enough, no one ever seems to give an answer when we ask them who their favourite employee is!

We can’t wait to see all the great web dev things Ben can do, and we feel like we’ve only scratched the tip of the iceberg with his technical know-how so far!

So welcome to the pixel family, Ben! We’re certainly glad you’ve joined us.
