Welcome Belinda and Charles

This week we welcomed two new software engineers to Shoes of Prey: Belinda and Charles. They'll  both be joining us 2 - 3 days a week while they are finishing their studies at university. Just like Melissa - who joined us last year - Belinda and Charles are incredibly talented individuals, and we're very lucky to have them join us.

Belinda (Bel) is currently in her fourth year studying Computer Science at the University of New South Wales. She has had previous work experience as a programmer with Fairfax Digital and Atlassian, and has also tutored first year students in higher computer and engineering design. Over the summer break she has been busy programming soccer-playing robots for an international competition that will be held in Turkey later in the year. Bel lists her hobbies as sleeping ("there can never be enough"), eating lots of delicious food and playing computer games (Team Fortress 2 is a particular favorite). 

Charles is in his final year of his Computer Science degree, also at the University of New South Wales. He has had work experience in the past with Microsoft, Roads and Traffic Authority, Mountaintop Systems and Ebix, as well as teaching classes at the university on algorithms and data structures, engineering tools and teamwok. Over the summer break he travelled to Seattle to work for Microsoft on the Bing Infrastructure team. Charles' interests include coding in his spare time and putting lots of pepper on his food!

Welcome Charles and Belinda!
