I started programming as a hobby around 17 years ago. At that time I also was into video-game hacking. Much later, I realised I could make a living from my hobby and took it seriously. I'm currently working for 8thLight and liking functional programming
I'm Tom, an ex-academic now freelance programmer with a side line in music and low cost robotics such as the PiWars competition series. I write and maintain a Python library for joystick controls for fun, and use other languages for work as needed!
