Volunteer Spotlight: Roy Sivan
In the weeks leading up to Website Weekend LA 2016, we’ll be shining the spotlight on some of the volunteers who will be donating their time and talent during the event to help build websites for local nonprofit organizations that are doing good in the community. Today, we meet Roy Sivan!
What’s your day job?
I’m currently a Senior Software Engineer at Disney. I spend most of my time building and maintaining WordPress websites.
How will you be using your experience to help during Website Weekend?
I can use my experience in code to help build responsive, awesome, websites.
What was your favorite project that you ever worked on?
I’ve worked on a few cool things for work, unfortunately my FAVORITE thing is no longer online, but was a full web application built with AngularJS and WordPress. I do really enjoy working on and contributing to TheWPCrowd.com
Why are you excited about Website Weekend?
I’m excited to be giving back and helping out. As a freelance consultant I always have found time to give back when possible, whether it is some free advice, or teaching someone code. I’m excited to have another opportunity to help someone, or some organization.
What’s your favorite book, movie or tv show?
Stranger Things was awesome, I’m really into anything Sci-Fi or “geeky”
What’s your favorite color?
Blue, but like a deeper epic blue, not hyperlink blue or sky blue.
