The First 100 Days

Associate developer Kurtis Trego wasted no time in becoming part of the team here. Now that he is 100 days into his time at KDG, he’s had plenty of opportunity to discover a little bit more about our company, our clients, and even himself.

What was your first impression of KDG?

During the Monday Morning Meeting on my first day, I was delighted to learn that the ‘Spirit Fingers’ segment of the presentation was about one of my personal heroes, Warren Buffet. His emphasis on preserving reputation at all costs and looking far into the future before making decisions is something I admire, so seeing that helped confirm that I would fit in here!

What is something you’re working to improve on?

I’ve been focusing a lot lately on enhancing the readability of my code by adhering to style standards and keeping it concise. As I gain more experience working with a team, I have realized the importance of prioritizing readability for both “future me” and others.

What can we expect from you in the next 100 days?

Now that I have had some time to acclimate myself to my position, I am ready to make the push to become an efficient, independent, and reliable part of the projects I am working on.

What’s something you’re working on right now that you’re excited about?

I loved working on internal projects for a bit to get a feel for KDG’s processes and tools, but after having some time to get acclimated, I am excited and prepared for the transition to the Zoho CRM project I am working on. I am a part of a great team that does everything they can to make sure I succeed and they are also fun to work with.

Where’s your favorite place to go on your lunch break?

Primo Hoagies and an Audiobook or podcast is a good combination for lunch for me.

How do you de-stress after a long week?

A Pan-Fried Ribeye and the latest space opera book, show, or movie after playing some good old-fashioned fetch with my husky, Jace.

What’s your favorite snack in the KDG kitchen?

It’s hard to beat the classic trail mix, but that new espresso machine is rising up my favorites list pretty rapidly (if that counts as a snack).
