“Take it easy” – James Brown
Meet Jason Foura, one of FrogSlayer’s custom software developer professionals. He began his journey with FrogSlayer in May of 2017 after being drawn to the diversity of work available here. He liked that FrogSlayer didn’t have just one client or just one software. While Jason did graduate from Texas A&M University, he’s proud to say that he resides in the Bryan/College Station area because he’s from here, whereas most are here because of TAMU.
What led you to custom software development?
I’ve always had an interest in computers – my first memory is playing on a giant K-Pro. My interest was mainly in games at first and then it grew over time. I took classes, participated in competitions/projects, and worked on computer maintenance for a little bit. I started school as an electrical engineer major and then switched to computer science at Texas A&M University.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Now that I’m more of a morning person, I usually get to work around 8am, after waking up at around 6:30am. I have my breakfast, go to work and then I usually cook dinner with my wife. We then like to hang out together and relax, play video games, watch a tv show together, and so on.
What’s your favorite part of being a developer?
I get to solve all sorts of problems all the time by being a custom software developer.
What’s something you wish other employers knew about developers?
Sometimes it’s best not to micromanage. That’s why I love FrogSlayer and it’s one of the reasons why I’m here. I have freedom to do the right thing and I’m trusted to know what the right thing is.
Where do you see the world of technology in 10 years?
I see technology being more mobile and less desktop, a transition to phone interface and tablet, and more automation stuff. By setting events on calendars, the house will know your routine, etc.
We’re glad Jason joined our team and quickly grew to be a leader within the firm. “One of the many reasons why I love FrogSlayer is I’m granted the freedom to do the right thing and I’m trusted to know what the right thing is.”
