Thomas is a 4th year electrical engineering student at the University of Queensland Australia. He has experience with both lower level "embedded systems" programming and higher level application layer programming. He believes that writing computer software is both a fundamental and empowering skill that can be picked up by anyone regardless of their previous experience with computer science. Because of this he enjoys showing others what he can and working collaboratively to improve both his own and other's skills. Outside of his study he is involved in developing his own software and playing guitar.
