Team spotlight time – let me introduce you to our newest and youngest member of staff – software engineer Ryan Welsh.
Who are you?
I am Ryan
What is your role at Linknode and how long have you been working here?
I have been working as a software engineer for just over a year. My role in the company is iOS developer, for our flagship product, VentusAR. My work involves adding new features to our game engine.
What has been your favourite project at Linknode?
My favourite project was undertaking a bespoke task for Natural Power. It involved combining VentusAR’s virtual reality mode with an external sensor system to create a useful tool for monitoring wind farms. I learned alot from this project as I completed it on my own, and several areas were new to me.
How has Linknode helped you in your career development?
I have been flung in at the deep end several times and been sent off to carry out research in a particular area to gain an understanding of the best approach needed to implement a new feature. This has enhanced my skills, not only in programming, but in design documentation and research. I am also given large feature projects to work on which are different to the next, so I am never really repeating tasks.

If you had to eat one meal every day, for the rest of your life, what would it be?
