Arpatech: Marius, you…show more content… I’ve been working at Arnia Software for more than 3 years (and counting). It’s a great place to work, I’m surrounded by people that I can call, without any regret, my friends. This makes it a lot easier every day.
But the awards did not come because of my work at Arnia. I rarely do any Magento projects here. I haven’t worked on one in 2 years.
The nominations and awards made me happy of course. It showed that the work I’ve done so far is appreciated and useful.
It all started with the challenge I mentioned before. I had to learn Magento by myself. Back then the old Magento forum was really slim with shady answers and I started answering questions with challenges similar to what I had to make it easier for others. Years later Magento.StackExchange came along and I shifted my focus there, mostly because the forum was more spam than useful information.
I had some free time at that point to answer questions. For a lot of them, I didn’t know the answer but they were interesting enough to make me dig further. That helped me learn a lot as well.
As for motivation, I have nothing more to say than “always take a hands on approach”. I’m not good at motivating people
