Q&A with Timothy Fuller
- Tell us about your background and how you got into technology.
- I have always been fascinated by technology, even as a little kid. I would take apart my toys, the VCR, the radio, really whatever I could get my hands on to learn how it worked and see what made it tick. Luckily, I have a mother who was as intrigued and inspired by technology as I am. She provided me with both the tools, like an Apple IIC, and opportunities to learn about various technologies and how they impact our lives. I took to computers young and started programming when I was 11-years-old. When I became an adult, I worked in various jobs that involved technology in different ways. From being a field service technician for Dish Network and Muzak and going to college to get a Bachelors of Science degree to working in the IT industry for more than 11 years.
- Describe your role at WWT Asynchrony Labs.
- As a software engineer for WWT Asynchrony Labs, my role is to provide solutions in the form of software technology to our clients and customers. This doesn’t simply mean just being able to read and write in a programming language or creating applications. At its core, my role involves working with both colleagues in and out of the the office, subject matter experts in various fields and our clients to come up with solutions for the problems they are facing. And through the methodologies of agile development and Test Driven Development (TDD), create solutions that are efficient, effective and meet the needs of my customers.
- What innovation is happening in IoT that has you really excited?
- There are many innovations happening, both inside WWT Asynchrony Labs and in the industry in general, but one of the most intriguing innovations to me is the concept of IoT. Finding new and interesting ways to create connectivity among devices, technologies, people and places in ways that you wouldn’t have thought of previously is inspiring, challenging and exciting. As different technologies become cheaper to mass produce and utilize, new and different doors will open, give rise to opportunities and even more innovations.
