Isla joined the Connections team at NCR Edinburgh in October 2014 as a Software Engineer. She has moved into software development, starting out as a Java developer, from the colourful world of soft matter physics. While she will always be interested in science, she very much enjoys the opportunities to learn and apply new technologies and skills that software development brings. She also particularly likes the fast-moving pace, especially in an Agile enviroment where you can see the day-by-date progress of the project.
Having lived in quiet a few places, Isla is quite certain that Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful places in the world, even when it's raining. She likes the views of Arthurs Seat from just about anywhere in the city and looks forward to wandering into Edinburgh's lesser explored corners.
When not working, she seeks out all the dancing that Edinburgh offers and frequently roams Europe in search of festivals for more dancing.
