Bright Bright Great Welcomes Ken Barrios as Front-End Developer

Bright Bright Great would like to extend a warm welcome our new Front-End Developer, Ken Barrios, to the team. Ken will be assisting BBG on our Technology team.

Ken Barrios

 

What is your official title at BBG?

Ken Barrios, Front-End Developer

What got you interested in development?

Three years ago, I came across an online ad for toys that were intended to teach toddlers the basic principles of programming. Seeing that made me realize that it was just a matter of time before coding would become a standard part of learning: just like reading, writing, and arithmetic. I decided I needed to get ahead of curve and dive into coding.

What interested you in working at BBG?

A friend forwarded me the link to the apprenticeship program at BBG. After doing some research about the firm it became clear that this is a design studio that is generating a lot of buzz, winning acclaim, and getting tapped for exciting projects. As someone new to web development and design, I knew that this would be an amazing opportunity to learn from the best.

 

What is your favorite fast food menu item?

The Wendy’s Baconator. If I have an opportunity to Baconate, I Baconate.

What do you hope to learn during your time at BBG?

Regarding web development: I’m hoping to get a better handle on the thought process needed to see a website through from start to finish, and learning to how efficiently organize my code by keeping everything as modularized as possible. Regarding design: I’m hoping to learn to think through a website with the user in mind, while also picking up lessons about how to choose appropriate color palettes, typefaces, and spacing.

What are your hobbies or interests outside of work?

When I’m not at work I’m either: running for an hour or two along the Lake Front Path, riding around the city on my fixed gear bike, or seeing the latest films at The Music Box. I also like follow political and architectural magazines like Jacobin and Metropolis.

Do you have any pets?

Nay. I like other people’s pets, but I don’t want to take care of my own.

What is your favorite place that you have ever visited, US-based, or international?

I’ve been lucky enough to visit a few spots in Central and South America, and I went to France once. But I think that my favorite place was India. I spent a month touring India from Hyderabad, to Bangaluru, to Puducherry. I need to go back to finally see Mumbai and New Delhi.

What’s something people are surprised to learn about you?

During my college years, my comrades and I successfully stopped the military from recruiting on our college campus. I’m also 99% positive that I coined the slogan “Undocumented Unafraid” in 2009.
