My name's Thane Thomson. I really enjoy making useful things for people, and I enjoy writing too. People fascinate me, but I also love getting my teeth into a good technical problem.

So far, since studying electronic engineering at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, I've run a company with a friend, worked in the digital media industry, and in research and development in the field of the Internet of Things. I completed my MBA through GIBS in 2011, where I specialised in studying entrepreneurship from a complexity theory perspective. My thesis was entitled Nascent Strategic Entrepreneuring as a Complex Responsive Process.

At the moment, I'm working for DStv Digital Media in research and development.

Technically, I've had experience in a variety of different programming languages, such as C/C++, Python, Java, PHP, HTML5 and Go. Framework-wise, I've had quite a bit of experience in building systems using Django and Spring Boot.
