Introducing the people behind the scenes at DPS, the company bringing you Disability Support Guide and Talking Disability, to help you get to know us a little better and give insight into what we do. Next up in our Q&A series is our Web Developer, Lachlan Fry.
How long have you been with DPS?
I have been with the organisation for five months and, even though I work remote, everyone has made sure to make me feel part of the team!
What is your role?
I am a website developer at DPS, I work on backend projects and AWS server deployment for our websites.
What are some of the things you’ve learnt in this role at DPS?
I have learnt that working in a team is better than on your own, especially since the DPS/HelloCare team is so friendly and supportive. I have also learnt a lot of new stuff when it comes to Laravel (web application framework) and best IT practices.
What is the best thing about working for DPS and HelloCare?
It is a really great team at DPS, everyone is so easy to get along with. Additionally, getting to work with Laravel, as it is by far my favourite route web framework and I enjoy working with it daily.
What is the best thing you have worked on?
I am currently working on a new exciting website project for our sister company, Hellocare. I am developing the backend from the ground up, which has been great fun.
What is your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement at DPS has been working on this exciting website project for HelloCare. The team has managed to get the website off the ground within such a short amount of time, it is phenomenal work!
Now for the fun questions!
Which team member would you most like to be stuck on a desert island with and why?
Probably my team leader, Aaron, as I’m prone to getting lost easily and I would lose track of everything I need.
Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?
I went to Indonesia a few years ago for around two months. I travelled all over the place and saw a ton of iconic locations and experienced so many new things.
What would your perfect room look like?
My perfect room would need to at least have an indoor waterfall. I like the idea of having a waterfall close by to listen to, as I enjoy the sound of water running. It would probably help me sleep as well.
What fictional place would you most like to go?
Where ever the Game Of Thrones locations are filmed. I would like to go into this world and see all the old buildings.
