Meet Malcolm Berry, Web Developer
How long have you been working at TopSpot and what do you do here?
I have been at TopSpot for nearly two years and I am a Web Developer on our Web Team.
What do you find the most rewarding about working at TopSpot?
What I find most rewarding is the valuable technical experience I gain from working on each project no matter how big or small because I know they will have an impact on the clients’ business. When I get the chance to develop something really interesting like a calculator, it always gets me excited because I will not only be challenging myself with the technical task but also learning in-depth details about a manufacturing industry that I probably would have never known existed. I’ve done calculators that calculate the best type of chiller depending on certain specifications, calculators that determine heat loss, to basic volume measurements, and it’s pretty cool to know they are being used and appreciated.
What has been your favorite project so far?
Laguna Crane mostly because it was my first site and I really like the colors/design. Building a MODX site was something I’ve never done before so it was pretty cool to see how a CMS functioned and how the things that I developed would come to life with content in the future.
What are your hobbies and interests?
Running and fishing at the parks around Texas, as well as traveling, biking, and reading. My favorite things to read right now are personal finance books as well as books about programming. So far, I’ve traveled to Europe and quite a few of the major U.S. cities. I try to make a point to run in every city I visit because I’ve found it to be the best way to really get to know a city.
What are you reading/watching/listening to right now?
Reading: The Dead Are Arising: The Life of Malcolm X by Les & Tamara Payne.
Watching: American Experience: Walt Disney – a documentary about Walt Disney’s life.
Listening: Process by Sampha
If you won the lottery, what would you do?
Buy a yacht and sail the world.
