Who are you, and what are you doing here at Flasheye?
I’m Sandra, a Junior Software Developer focusing on improving the user interface, making the user experience as accessible and seamless as possible.
You’re currently studying now. What are you studying, and why did you choose to do so?
I’m in my 3rd year of a Computer Science degree and going for my Master's, which will be in Information and Communication. Growing up, I’ve always been into video games and technology, so I knew I wanted to do something that would let me get closer to those things. It’s also a broad enough subject to allow for much exploration and discovery.
What was it about Flasheye that attracted you in the first place, and how has your experience been so far?
I was invited to a game jam called “Ctrl+S” at Mobilaris Innovation Center, which Flasheye helped to sponsor, and had a lot of fun there. During the game jam, we attended a presentation by Flasheye and were impressed enough to follow it up, and the rest is history!
The experience has been great for my development as we're given our choice of projects to work on and are trusted enough to be responsible for these projects.
Since coming to Flasheye, what is the most interesting or surprising thing you've learned about LiDAR since joining our company?
Coming into the company LiDAR was a new technology for me and I have been solely focused on the interface, so I can’t claim to know too much about the technology itself! Saying that, though, It still amazes me the level of fidelity and dimensionality you can get from just a sensor.
The world is ending, and for some reason, you’re throwing a dinner party to celebrate the destruction of mankind. What are we eating and who are our guests, dead or alive?
This is probably very boring, but it’d be a kebab pizza. We’re having an apocalyptic pizza party with kebab pizza. Specifically, the Southern style of kebab as I’m from Kungsbacka; but I haven’t tried a Norbotten kebab yet so who knows!
Again it’s probably super boring, but I wouldn’t want to share my last meal with anybody I don’t know, so my boyfriend Tobias, my mother, and my grandpa are the only ones invited to my pizza party.
