Name:

Vasily Geyer

Nationality:

Russian

Superpower (job):

I don’t know 😊

 What’s your background?

Software engineer with a focus on building distributed systems in AWS cloud at scale

What drew you to apaleo?

Team, one day Benni asked, do you wanna do something cool together, I said - yes

What the heck is it that you do?

I was building core features of apaleo platform, building cloud infrastructure, payment, a lot of stuff. Now I’m building the developer community around apaleo

What is your favorite part about apaleo? What gets you pumped up in the morning?

Feeling that we move this industry further by bringing new tech into it. And ofc (of course) the feedback that I’m getting all the time from developers – how cool the apaleo platform is and it’s a joy to develop against it

What upcoming trends in hospitality/hospitality tech are you most excited about? 

  • Contactless checkin/checkout (no interaction with hotel staff at all)
  • New concepts like service apartments that are all about using tech at it’s core
  • Automating more and more and seeing how hotel companies start getting developers in-house to developer custom things tailored for them. So hospitality companies start shifting from being just regular company with no devs, to the company where R&D becomes important

If you could magically pick up one new skill overnight, what would it be?

Time travel, I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life and I can’t fix them

What’s one of your favorite family traditions that you miss from home?

Going for a road trip together

What’s something people would be surprised to know about you?

I started smoking again

Who is your favorite super hero and why?

It’s not really a superhero, but I like Lieutenant Commander Data from Star Trek TNG. He is an android but he was doing humane and right decisions in difficult situations
