Quick Questions with Daryl Milne: Cloud Developer

Daryl aka 'Daz' is a key cog in the SwipedOn dev machine and self-proclaimed nerd. When he doesn’t have his head in the cloud, Daz loves a good Netflix series and is a keen gamer. He is also known as the guy who possesses an impressive moustache... we tend to agree (see below). 

What does a day in the life of you at SwipedOn look like? 

After saying goodbye to my dog I head to the office. We will then have our standup where we co-ordinate what each of us is working on. After that, I might be blasting my eardrums with some music while writing some code, collaborating with the team on a tricky challenge, or working with our Head of Product, Ben on planning some awesome feature we will bring to our customers.
