Christos, for a while, was ‘this guy that Yannis knew.’ We figured he was probably ok because of that connection. So we hired him for some part-time work initially. As it happens, Christos is a very good developer and a good guy. Just goes to show that the best way to find great developers (great people) is via people you meet in the back of taxis going to weddings. We try to do that as often as possible (soon to be Coko employment policy). Christos and Yannis are also generous hosts and they looked after the team very well when we had our team meeting in Athens earlier in the year.
Over the past 5 years, Christos has been involved in a number of projects as a developer and consultant, spanning the music, tourism, education and marketing industries.
Christos is a graduate of the Athens Technological Institution of Computer Science and a Cisco Certified Network Professional. He is passionate about building state-of-the-art, user-friendly applications and is constantly seeking out new technologies that will help him achieve this goal.
He tells me he is excited to be on the team (which makes me happy), and he is building UI components full-time with Yannis for the Editoria project. We are very lucky, and very happy, that Christos is part of the Coko family.
