Once a month we'll shine our virtual spotlight on one of the CA Plex/2E community's members. It's just a fun, easy way for us to get to know one another a little bit beyond our work-related interactions here on the site. This month, we're featuring markus.wagner, Application Manager, SISA.
Location: Reinach, Switzerland
Current Gig: Application Manager declare|it, Software developer
One word that describes how you work: magical (sometimes I don’t even know how I did it)
How do you use CA Communities and any suggestions for others?
Just learning how to get the best of it. Submitting ideas, asking questions, answering questions, learning from discussions. Interesting way to have contact to other plex users.
Mac or PC?
HTC One X+
Apps/software/tools you can’t live without?
Books (don’t blame me, but even as a developer, I can live without any software ;-))
Besides your phone and computer, what's your favorite gadget?
What’s your daily work space like?
- Sometimes a little disordered (I pile up “important” papers until my next clean up day).
- Some coloured sand in a little bottle (from a mandala created and destroyed by a tibetan monk, should remind that nothing last forever).
- Some pom-pom made by one of my daughters (good to throw at co-worker for getting their attention, particularly when they are wearing headphones)
How do you balance life/work?
My wife and my 3 girls don’t let me mess up private and work life. And it's no problem for me switching off work, when I leave the office.
Best advice you can give and you have received?
Don’t let others rule your life (and especially not your smartphone)
What everyday thing are you better at than anyone else?
A tricky question. I don’t know if I’m better at anything than anyone else.
