There is an incredible team of developers working hard behind the scenes make Lucky Orange what it is today and where it will be tomorrow. It’s time to get to know one of our junior developers – Augie Gilbreath.
You could say that Augie Gilbreath is more than just a junior developer. He brings his skills, humor and hard work to help build the interface for the Lucky Orange app.
When he’s not writing code to help power the next generation of the Lucky Orange app, he’s busy as a part-time magician.
Between projects, I caught up with Augie and put him in the hot seat for six quick questions to get to know the team and learn what life at Lucky Orange is really all about:
Angi Bowman (AB): How has your job evolved since the first days of Lucky Orange?
Augie Gilbreath (AG): There hasn’t been a lot of change of domain, just growth of capabilities/responsibilities. I’m now building bigger and better parts of our app.
AB: What would people be surprised to know about you?
AG: Very little. I put my pants on the same way as everyone else: Butt first.
AB: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
AG: I wanted more than anything to be a Ninja Turtle. But I’ve since realized that that’s biologically impossible. I’ve decided I’m okay just being a regular turtle.
AB: If Lucky Orange were a TV show, which character – from any sitcom, drama or reality show – would represent you?
AG: As a big “Parks & Recreation” fan, I’ve been told I have all the charming warmth and friendliness of Ron Swanson as well as the competence and intelligence of Andy Dwyer.
AB: What characteristic(s) do you most admire in others?
AG: Warmth, empathy and the ability to be quiet.
AB: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Editor’s note: Maybe someday, with a few drinks and a little luck, we’ll get the truth out about Augie’s crazy backstory. Watch for our next issue to learn more about another one of our developers, Josh Ollendick.
