Rootstrap Nine: Nine Questions With Rootstrap Deviantly Divine Developer Damian Cardozo

Our Los Angeles development shop would be nothing without the dedicated ladies and gentlemen putting in the work behind the scenes.  That’s why we’re back to shine a light on another Rootstrap team member.

Many of our development team live and work in Uruguay.  One of them is Damian Cardozo, known around the office as Charly.  The 25-year-old is a home grown resident of Montevideo and while he’s only been on the NR team for a little over six months, he’s already become an invaluable frontend developer.  In other words, he’s the man that makes things looks good.

Let’s get to the questions!
