Cooper Hilscher - Lead Mobile Developer


Cooper Hilscher joined our Solid Portland team in late June. In the midst of drinking from the firehose and learning the Solid process, he answered a few of our questions:

Q: Who is your tech inspiration?

I would have to say my inspiration is my brother. When I was very young he taught me how to do some very basic programming on a commodore 64 and then, later on, an Amiga. I didn't do much with the knowledge for a while, but it came in handy when I started programming as a career.

Q: What is your strongest computer language?

PHP.

Q: What is your favorite movie?

I would have to say either The Big Lebowski or UHF. I'm a sucker for quotable movies.

Q: What is your favorite music or musician?

I think my favorite musician is Derek Trucks, but my favorite music is psychedelic rock.

Q: What music/musician do you code to?

I like to listen to movie soundtracks a lot, like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, or dance music like Madeon.

Q: What website can you NOT live without?

…I wish it was something important….but probably failblog.

Q: Do you have a tattoo? If you could get one, what would it be?

I do not have a tattoo. If I were to get one, I would like to get a russian prison tattoo. They are really awesome looking.

Q: If you could do ANYTHING, what would it be?

I have seen some pretty affordable islands.
