That it can be done in many different ways to arrive at the same solution.

What brought you to Orvium? What do you like about the product?

I was looking for an internship where I could learn a lot of things about software development and my friend who works here told me a lot about the company and the things they were doing. I found it interesting, so I decided it would be a good place to learn.

Anything else you would like to share with us?

My favorite food is fried eggs and chips, but I also like pizzas and meat. I also like to try other types of food such as Chinese or Mexican food.
