A bit about Ben...

So what does your job actually involve? Tell us all about it

10 PRINT "Writing and maintaining code for TSR's websites and systems. ";
20 REM "(Not actually in BASIC, obvs lol!)"
30 GOTO 10

What's the most unique part of your role at The Student Room?

Adding too much late 90s trance to the office playlist.

What do you find most exciting about working in the student & youth market?

There's a lot of variety in the type of development work which we do at TSR, and a lot of scope to try new technologies and approaches to programming, so there's rarely a dull moment - even on Tuesdays!

If you could give your student self one piece of advice what would it be?

Maybe, instead of spending another evening playing N64 Goldeneye or drinking watered down lager, have a think about putting together some kind of website where people can connect with friends and share what they're currently thinking, photos of cats/their lunch, and so on and so forth.

It worked out quite well for that Zuckerberg guy...
