We Are: David Franquet, Android Developer
How did you start your career?
I studied Computer Science at E. Pia and whilst I was there I created a project management app for Android. Once I finished my studies, I began working at FarAndSoft as an Android Developer; I stayed there for four years before moving to Pangea Reality to work as an Android and Unity 3D Developer. My two-year stint there gave me the opportunity to learn more about both AR and VR.
I was also working on a personal project with three of my good friends during those two years but this was unfortunately put on the backburner when we were unable to find time to work on it.
What do you love about Barcelona?
I love Gracia because it’s a very low-key and laidback area of the city that offers, in my opinion, the best places to live in Barcelona. I also love Pl. Catalunya and Las Ramblas for shopping.
I’m also fond of Tibidabo as it offers some of the best views of Barcelona.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy playing my electric guitar, listening to my favourite music, playing video games, and watching Netflix on the sofa with a bag of popcorn. I can also be found trekking up the mountains around Catalonia on the weekends.
I’m also interested in spending my spare time improving upon my knowledge and experience of new technologies, as well as assisting with developers’ conferences that are hosted in Barcelona.
