On the lighter side of things , we ask the industry experts what makes them tick . . . .

. . . GET TO KNOW . . .

Wesley Willians , CEO , Full Cycle

wWhat would you describe as your most memorable achievement ?

My most memorable achievement is knowing that I contribute daily to training developers and companies so they can feel prepared to create great applications in complex ecosystems . We understand that these large systems change our world and knowing I am part of it is really rewarding .
What first made you think of a career in technology ?
What style of management philosophy do you employ in your current position ?
I believe that any management is based on leadership and processes . Leadership needs to happen by example . If I want my tutors to be able to give a great class , I need to be able to teach just as well . If I want my salespeople to accomplish a high performance , I also need to be a high-performance professional .
Therefore , managing a company is about showing everyone involved that you have “ skin in the game ”.
I have been in this sector for over 20 years now . My first contact with programming was to develop a program that calculated the average grades of students to whom my mother taught Portuguese . During this period , I took a course at a computer school where I learned my first programming language . Then the web appeared , and my focus turned entirely to websites and systems that run in the cloud .
