Team Cooper's newest team member says 'Aloha'!

Matt Says Aloha

Hi, I’m Matt, and I’m the new student on placement here.  Like all the newbies, I’ve been asked to write a blog post. I guess it’s some sort of initiation ritual. I hope I don’t have to drink goat’s blood or anything…

Joking (I hope) aside, I’m very happy to be here. When the opportunity came up on my university website, I hadn’t heard of Team Cooper at all. Not knowing what to expect, I went on a recon mission to find out more about them. I visited the website and was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and cheerful the company appeared to be. After reading all about the Team, I knew that if I were able to get a placement with them, it would not only be somewhere I would learn a lot, but it would be somewhere that I’d be very happy to go to work to every day.

The view from my window

The view from my window never fails to amuse me.

I didn’t know how I was going to cope with getting up at 7:30 every morning, but after being here for two weeks now, I can safely say that I actually enjoy waking up and coming in to work. These first couple of weeks have been spent getting up to speed on AS3 and trying to get myself into the same style of coding as the other Team Cooper developers. Having only a little experience in object oriented ActionScript made me think I would be playing catch up for quite a while, but I’m getting to grips with it pretty quickly.

Everyone here at Team Cooper is really nice, and they’ve made me feel very welcome, which is something I am very grateful for. Hopefully they won’t find out that the only reason I’m working here is for the slide…

    Matt, I did a stint at Team Coop.

    A quick warning about the goat’s blood…Russ puts it in your tea when it’s ‘his round’ so watch out for that one.

    Enjoy 🙂
