Let’s being the interview and see what he has to say about different aspects of development.
Question 1: Hi Josh, thank you for coming on board. Before we jump into the technical side, please tell our readers about yourself.
My name is Josh Johnson, I’m 31 years old, and I’m from Alabama. I spent around 8 years in the US Army, worked with kids with disabilities and now I am in the software development field. So I guess you could say that I experienced a lot.
The reason I decided to get into the software development field was that when I was working with kids with disabilities like speech delays, Autism, things of that nature, I used these speech applications daily with the children and I couldn’t help think to myself, if I was in a position to make one of these applications, I know exactly what is missing, what works, what doesn’t. So I put myself in the position to get into the tech field and that is my long term goal is to create one of those applications one day after I acquire more experience.
Question 2: You worked as a Full Stack Developer at Scrubs Data and later was hired as a Systems Process Analyst at INQU LLC. What is the difference between these two roles?
Question 3: What are the five things that new Full Stack Developers should focus on?
Question 4: Who is your inspiration in the field of development? What are some of the influencers do you follow?
As far as inspiration goes, I don’t want to sound full of myself, but myself. I have been through a lot in my life, and to be able to be where I am is a blessing. Some influencers that I follow are more like motivational speakers, like Eric Thomas, David Goggins, Gary Vaynerchuk, Joe Rogan, Jocko Willink, to name a few.
Question 5: What is your favorite developmental language and why?
React JS, the framework is really intriguing! Just being able to create some code, install packages and see results immediately without refreshing the page is awesome!
Question 6: WordPress is very popular these days. Many businesses are keen on purchasing WordPress hosting. What do you think about it? And how a Full Stack Developer leverage the power of WordPress to create something extraordinary?
WordPress is very popular indeed.
Probably the best thing about WordPress is that it is free and it gives you complete control of your website. You own and control all your website files and data. You are not tied to a web hosting company and can move your website anywhere you want. It gives you access to a huge collection of extensions, add-ons, and plugins to extend and enhance your website. This enormous access to professional applications allows you to make anything you want.
And being a Full Stack Developer, you have the knowledge and skillset to make a WordPress site and take it over the top!
Question 7: As you know, HostNOC is a famous web hosting, we have secure, robust servers, what are your views about having a good web hosting? And how HostNOC can help businesses getting secure and websites with amazing user experiences?
HostNOC offers a lot of key quality capabilities. cPanel (for Linux) or Plesk (for Windows) control panel, Unmetered bandwidth, POP3 email accounts, MySQL databases with phpMyAdmin, Server-side includes (SSI), Backup services, to name a few. Just being able to rely heavily on a good web host is key, in my opinion.
