Tell us a little about yourself, Liam!

I grew up in Bedford, Nova Scotia, but have been living in NL since 2015. This past  year, I graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering. When I'm not writing code you can find me rock climbing, hiking, sailing, or at a bar — and I’m also a big fan of DIY projects, home renovations, and binge-watching YouTube tutorials on things I’ll never do.

How did you first get into development?

After connecting with the Memorial Centre for Entrepreneurship (MCE), I knew I wanted to work for a startup. Then, when exploring local startups and evaluating how I could make an impact, development matched with my interests in technical problem solving, design, and building things.

Why did you first join CoLab and what are you most excited about?

I already knew some of the CoLab team through school and mutual friends. And, in my eyes, they were all incredibly smart and hard-working people — basically, the exact type of people I wanted to surround myself with. Once I learned more about the product and the problem being solved, I knew for sure I wanted to be a part of it.

It feels like a bit of a cop-out to use the language of our mission and vision, but I truly am most excited by the opportunity to contribute to a product that allows engineers to build the future faster.

If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs—such as food and water—were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?

A 2008 iPod shuffle (Space Gray), and a dog. Any dog will do.
