Help us give a warm welcome to Courtney Cania, the newest Full Stack Developer on our iFactory web development team. With a passion for tackling problems and finding creative solutions, we’re confident she’ll make a great addition to your next web project team. We sat down and asked her some questions to help you get to know her and here’s what she had to say.
Do you have any nicknames we should know about?
My older brothers and parents have always called me Court. I’m totally fine with people calling me by my full name of course, but I feel a little more at home when called by my family nickname.
What is your favorite part about working in web development?
Web development is all about problem solving, finding creative solutions, and boasts endless opportunities for learning. I thrive on that Eureka! moment when I have made something work or have grasped a new concept.
What’s your favorite place you’ve visited?
Definitely Sedona, Arizona for its amazing hikes and sunsets. Since spending most of my life in New England, the southwest landscape is like nothing else I have seen.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
There are so many things I’d like to change about humanity and create a world of equality among everyone, but if I can’t have that, then I would just like to be able to pause, record, replay, and fast forward through certain moments in life.
Cat person or dog person?
I love both, and especially like to gawk at dog-related Instagram accounts like @thedogist, but I’ve only ever kept cats, and I admire their independent nature.
Most rewarding project or past achievement you’ve been a part of?
I enjoyed working on the redesign and development of alumni.dartmouth.edu for Dartmouth College. It was a highly-collaborative process that drew together creators, strategist, developers, and stakeholders across multiple departments. A redesign of the website was long overdue, and posed some interesting integration challenges with existing feeds and data sources. It was redesigned twice in a three year span—I gave it a theme refresh before we fully developed it in Drupal.
What’s your educational background?
I have my bachelor’s degree in graphic design from Southern New Hampshire University, a master’s degree in information and communication technology from the University of Denver, and a certificate in UX from the Nielsen Norman Group. Have I mentioned that I really love to learn? #StudentForLife
