Ladies & gents, our Dundas Champion of this month, @luis.silva!
He is one who enthusiastically participates in almost every activity in The Dundas Community and we love that energy! But you know what I like about him more? That he says yes to pineapple on a pizza!
Here’s getting to know this handsome person some more!
@tejas.shah (T): Tell us a little about what you do at Medidata.Net?
@luis.silva (L): Medidata.Net is a leader vendor of ERP software for the Portuguese Local Government. We develop and sell software for the governance of a typical Local Government. Our goal is to achieve a place, where all the software needed for the administration and control of this type of institution is sold by us.
(T): What is your typical workday like?
(L): The morning, habitually is dedicated to read and answer emails, get up to date with latest IT news and whenever possible, take a peek at the cube! The afternoon, generally is occupied with developing, in Dundas of course , and dealing with any issues from any of our clients.
(T): What advice would you give to your 18 years old self?
(L): From John Keaton (Robin Williams) in the “Dead Poets Society” fabulous movie, this what I would say:
“Carpe, carpe. Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.”
“There’s a time for daring and there’s a time for caution, and a wise man understands which is called for.”
(T): Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
(L): Retired, playing golf on a pacific blue water island! Oh! If I could, I would!
If it were not possible, I see myself dealing with data, get some sense out of it!
(T): Any hobbies or passions you would like to share with The Dundas Community?
(L): I love to play golf and I don’t lose any opportunity to get on a golf course for 18 holes! Watch my favorite soccer team, FC Porto. Watch some series and movies on the streaming channels, I particularly love “Ted Lasso” playing on Apple Tv+, it’s a joyful series with a quite good cast and storyline.
(T): Finally, what’s your favorite feature in Dundas BI?
(L): It’s difficult for me just to highlight one favorite feature in Dundas BI as for me there are a bunch of them: data cubes are awesome, the drag and drop way of building almost everything is a must, metric-set for reusability a breeze, templating for responsiveness.
