Meet an IDS EmployeeIDS Developer: Nick Attebury
Nick Attebury has been working at IDS for nine years and for him the best thing about working here is there is always a new challenge to take on and complete. Nick enjoys the freedom he is given and the trust to figure the challenges out on his own and to the best of his ability, while having others around that are always willing to help out so IDS can get it exactly right.
Nick has six people in his family including his parents and once upon a time his cousin worked at IDS! His favorite food is pizza and even though he does development at IDS he got a Film Studies degree with an emphasis in Animation after changing his mind about a Computer Science degree, but in the end he choose to do computer science, interesting how things turn out. Not only does Nick know lots about computers, but he loves to read. “Even as a kid in elementary school, I was reading, I have always been a big reader,” says Nick.
Reading, computers and movies, it doesn’t get any better than that. When asked what his favorite movie was, Nick responded “I can only pick one?” In the end he was able to narrow it down to five favorites movies and here they are:
- Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back
- Lord of the Rings
- The Last Samurai
Nick’s Favorite Movie Quote: “Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened. Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
