This Sunday, 26 March is Mother's Day. The day when we celebrate and thank that special person in our life. We asked around some of the Webfactory team to find out how their mums had helped them on their path to a career in digital. Here's what they said...
Thank You Mum for...
"...buying me my first computer (Windows 95 - simply the best!) so I could learn HTML when I was four! Also, gave me the determination to achieve in my career!"
Ronan Lowry, Web Developer
"...calling me during the wee hours of the morning to say ‘I miss you’. "
Alisha Yee, Relationship Manager
"...taking science and maths books on holiday to Spain, and making me do at least one exercise every night."
David Williams, Technical Project Manager
"...letting me test your patience and resilience."
Conor Gibbons, Tester
"...never standing in my way and letting me make my own mistakes."
Mary Butler, UX Designer
