Here's the first installment of the Developer Bio's. HM2 poker software development is very busy but I will get developer bio's for all that want to participate. udbrky & Morny have been incredible assets to the design and testing of HM2. They will more than likely be next while I wait for HM2 Programming time to settle down.
A. Brent and B-Money on the HM forums.
How long have you worked for Holdem Manager?
A. 2+ years now
What specific part of Holdem Manager do you work on?
A. I coordinate releases, upload builds, test bugs, product development & design, hm.com news, blog, video production, customer support, Programmer support, etc.
Anything interesting about your past work experience?
A. I worked at Nintendo for 9 years. After Nintendo I spent another 9 years at Left Field productions where design Excitebike 64 SX levels and the WSOP poker games.
Have you done any poker side projects in the past?
A. WSOP video game got me started in poker and I haven’t looked back since.
What is your favorite variation of poker?
A. Omaha Hi/Lo is the nuts for me. I just learned the game this year and I’ve been profitable at it so I’m not looking back. Game isn’t as aggressive at the low stakes compared to holdem and there’s lots of limping. It doesn’t feel like a fight every time you enter a pot. Rarely is the pot 3-bet Preflop. Maybe it's the micro stakes I'm playing.
How often do you play?
A. I generally play every single day. I don’t put in the volume, but I try to play for an hour every day. I call it “testing time”. Don’t tell the boss!
Can you share anything that might help a developer get hired for their dream job? (Poker or not)
A. Whether it’s video games, poker, stocks or website development; spend every waking hour researching and getting your hands wet. There’s a saying I’ve seen a lot lately, “Make your own luck.” Your dream job isn’t going to land in your lap; you have to make your own luck to get what you want. Do that by being passionate about whatever it is you like doing.
