Boagworld Review “What impresses me so much about vzaar is that while other video platforms sit on their laurels, vzaar are constantly innovating and improving their service. Their stunning new interface is a classic example of this” said Paul Boag of leading web design blog Baogworld. “We have been testing the interface and are very impressed. We really liked the previous iterations for the vzaar video platform but this new and more powerful interface makes the process a whole lot simpler.”

vzaar welcomes Aaron…

article by:

Hello, my name is Aaron and I’m the latest member of the vzaar team.

I joined on the 1st of April – no joke – as a web designer/developer as well to help maintain the social aspects of the company [vzaar blog, twitter etc… you know what I mean].

I am very excited to be joining as I got a very good impression as to what the company are trying to achieve when coming here a few weeks ago. Being passionate about all things web based, especially video, I hope my time at vzaar will help me develop my current skill set in order to help the company grow.

Here’s a few little ‘ice breaking’ facts about me, just so when you say hello, you don’t get that sense of awkwardness :

  • I come from the same town as The Darkness and Little Chris
  • I started making websites when I was 15
  • I’m left-handed
  • The first CD I bought was ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory? by Oasis
  • I support Norwich City F.C (and yes, I have met Delia Smith)

During the next few weeks, exciting ones at that, I’ll be posting interesting stuff that’s been going on here at vzaar towers.

Until next time,

Aaron J Rodgers
