Tabler of the Week: Conor Hastings

Why Do We Have a Tabler of the Week?

We periodically interview one of our amazing co-workers to highlight on our culture blog.  A great culture is 100% about the people that drive it.  We come from different places, backgrounds, and experiences and all add a lot of spice to this workplace.

What were you doing before you came to Social Tables?

Lots of things, mostly recently freelance video editing, before that I was at deadspin.com for a bit.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I like to do a lot of the same things I do at work, write a lot of code. Also playing board games, going to wineries, and bowling as much as possible (I have my own shoes in ball).

Talk about your favorite Core Value:

Constant Innovation. I love the fact that we’re so willing to quickly change and choose the best technology for our jobs.

 

Talk about your favorite Social Tables event:

My favorite Social Tables event was probably the Chiavaris. It was great for everyone in the company to get together in ridiculously awesome tropical apparel. Also just really, really awesome to see coworkers who you might not interact with day in and out be rewarded for the awesome jobs that they do.

What makes you weird?

The better question might be what doesn’t make me weird. I don’t eat lunch or really sleep (about 3 hours a night) and I’ve been known to have a minor obsession with candy (I bought approximately 13 pounds last week).

Cheers from Peers:

Thank you for being a great person to work with in my time at Social Tables! It’s been an inspiration to me every day how deeply you live and breathe Javascript technologies, and how much of an expert you’ve become in the React ecosystem in such a short time! I look forward to seeing what amazing things you will continue to bring to the browser-based world!

Working with both of you to debug the issue in VM3 was great. Your speed, accuracy, and pragmatism was a lesson for all!

Congrats on the invite to speak at React Europe! That’s awesome!
