- If you were a super hero – which would you be?
- Jean Grey from the X-Men.
I don't care about flying or spiderwebs. Jean Grey has telekinetic powers that can heal people, even yourself!
- How did you come to Sweden?
I was offered a job here as Software Developer.
- What do you love about Sweden?
Swimming in the lakes here in Stockholm in the Summer. Also barbecue in the winter with the big sausages (Falukorv) is fun. I’ve never done a barbecue in the snow before.
What’s your core talent?
What’s your Real talent?
Persistency to be honest. And it can actually burn you, but I never give up.
What fancy tech knowledge did you use to build Annons Assistant?
I used REACT with Next JS, a simple framework for the front end, but this is just the beta version.
- And this isn't your first! You previously built an app that allowed internationals to check the status of their work permit application?
Yeah, I was waiting for months for my decision, so I created a simple app to update you when a decision was made. But... I put 'Migrationsverket' in the name, which is not ok! I’m not a migration guy! I thought it would just be good to search!
Ricardo's previous app would update users when a decision was made on their case.
