David AhDoot – KAPTÁR faces

I’m a software developer from Los Angeles, California, though I’ve been a digital nomad for 18 months now. After spectacularly failing to learn Spanish during my 8 months in South America, I’m now failing to learn all of the European languages I’m encountering at a world-class pace.   What is your most important life lesson, since you became a nomad? Say yes to (almost) everything! What is the best part of your job? I’m a software developer and the thing that most people don’t realize about software development is that it can be quite artistic. Not in the traditional sense of the word, but in that there is a lot of creativity and elegance involved in writing good code. Despite not having a traditional “artistic” stretch of DNA in my cells, this brings me satisfaction almost every day. What were your funniest/best KAPTÁR moments? When Matild thought my name was Diarrhio...

KAPTÁR faces – Connor Feemer

Hi! I’m Connor Feemer! My gamer bros just call me co/fee! I can work like a frickin machine, but sometimes I just blow off some steam. Let’s just say, I have ground moments ;-) I’m totally social: always up for a great coffee and I can hardly wait for the community lunches. I’m vegan though, so the only thing I get roasted is coffee, muhaha. I usually take short coffee breaks, but „if needed“, I can let it flow a little longer. Don’t miss out on my foamy features! You know where you find me: I’m the only FIXIE in the FLEXIE area! Man, I already love being a KAPTÁRmember, this place is gonna make me boil! Learn more about me HERE!...

The most important life lesson is that failure isn’t real, it is a facade.

Capital??? like it’s in the Capital ??? 🔸 Which music is that makes you think about KAPTAR (or what describes the best the ‘KAPTAR feeling’)?

KAPTAR faces – Őzse Attila

Attila Őzse is 26 years old and lives in Budapest. He’s been developing a photo search portal for 2 years, together with his friend Bendzsi Nagy. Attila came up with the idea. It’s a very exciting task and one of the biggest challenges of his life. You can check out the website HERE. Plus he is a fulltime photographer and made movies for many years. But after a while he realized, that it’s hard to do so many things at the same time, so he quit the filmmaking. Why do you like KAPTÁR? I had worked many years from coffee shops and from home. In the first 2-3 years, it was great that I didn’t have to go anywhere to work and could do whatever I wanted at home. But in the past 1-2 years, I realized that this solitude has limits, so I searched for alternatives, where I can keep my freedom but still have a social life. That was the moment when my friends Bálint and Dalma recommended KAPTÁR, which I immediately checked out. I already loved the first day, so I kept coming every day ever since. I’ve been part of the community for a couple of weeks only but I have already met many interesting people. Everyone is really cool. This is exactly what I’ve missed in my life. Therefore KAPTÁR offers me inspiration. The community is inspiring and so is the whole atmosphere of the place.” 🔸 What has been your most important life lesson, since you became self-employed? That everything changes constantly. There is no consistency. I change, the circumstances change, so one should...

KAPTÁR faces – Surján Ági

Ági is working from KAPTÁR almost every weekday by now. She has been working for Drops as a general assistant / universal problem solver since March, so this world is quite new for her so far. Before that, she lived in South-Korea for 3 years and went to University there and worked in a „proper“ office job, but she didn’t like it. At Drops, everyone works remotely and Ági has the feeling, that she found the perfect thing for her. „I chose KAPTÁR, because a part of my team works here regularly and they recommended it. Since then, I became the one who comes here most often, I love to come here every day.” 🔸 What’s the best part of your job? The best about my job is, that I can be a part of a fantastic team and that my field of work is very various. I can learn new things every day and develop constantly. 🔸 What’s most exciting about new challenges? That I’m not bound to any place. If I want, I can do my job from a different country tomorrow, without any problems. 🔸 What did you hate most about working at home? That I constantly fell asleep on the couch, but at KAPTÁR everyone works so diligently, that I’m motivated too and therefore much more...
