Silas grew up in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Living in the country and working on a farm, he didn’t expect to get hooked on technology. His penchant for developing and programming, however, eventually lead him to NSCC’s web development program.
Since then, Silas’ development repertoire has evolved to encompass an impressive range of websites, apps and programs. Whether it’s developing a fully responsive social network, programming a web application that tracks media requests and coverage, or leading Kula’s team of developers in a complex website build, there’s no development challenge Silas is unwilling to tackle.
Silas likes nothing more than getting to the bottom of a good problem, and finds it hard to put something down once he has picked it up. He enjoys working in a number of different languages, although PHP and MySQL are favourites.
When he isn’t programming things, Silas enjoys the fun and competition of playing various computer and console video games. He also thinks there’s nothing better than gathering around a table and playing some board games with a few friends, and slaying monsters in Dungeons and Dragons.
