New Faces of Bamboo: Introducing Weilin Peng

Editor's note:  As readers of our 2009 Year in Review series will have likely gathered, Bamboo is currently undergoing rapid growth.  Some of our new hires have been with us for a couple of months now, but with new faces appearing in the office seemingly daily in recent weeks, we thought it would be a good idea to introduce the new folks to Bamboo Nation.  You should expect to see many of these new faces beginning to appear regularly here in the Team Blog over the course of the year.Weilin Peng, Junior Software Engineer

What is your role at Bamboo, and what are your goals for the year

I am a Junior Software Developer. I am are working part-time for now, and will become a full-time employee after I graduate from the George Washington University in May. My immediate goals are to become familiar with the company's product line, and to successfully transition from a student to a professional.

What's your professional background?

As a full-time student, I don't have a professional background as such.  As I mentioned, I'll be graduating in May, with a masters degree in computer science.

What prompted you to join the Bamboo team?

The most important reason was that I am interested in both C# and SharePoint development. Other reasons include that I'd like stay In D.C., and Bamboo has customers all over the world, and from nearly every imaginable industry.

What are some of your first impressions of working at Bamboo? 

The environment is quite friendly. Tim, my boss is great. And I like the food in the kitchen.  Big Smile

With over 60 products to learn, do you feel overwhelmed?  What's your strategy for getting up to speed?

I don't feel overwhelmed at all – on the contrary, I feel excited. As a programmer, learning design and code from foundational products is important.

Other than your deep and abiding love of Web Parts, what interests or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?

I like playing basketball, skiing, swimming, and tasting foods.
