My name is Thomas Rinklin. I’m 33 years old and a software developer at FIFTY2. I joined the company in September 2016.
I would say the main thing I work on is PreonPy. At least that’s the main thing that’s publicly visible. Internally I also work a lot on tooling, like our test framework making sure PreonLab behaves according our expectations and on our build pipeline.
Working with all those excellent people here at FIFTY2, who challenge and support me in software engineering … and in cooking and table football, both things we do a lot at FIFTY2 :-D.
I really like the challenge software development provides me. It is always about understanding the system and the feature you want to add. And then combine everything in a way that is fast, extensible and easy to understand.
And of course, seeing people using and enjoying the features I developed or were involved in. So please keep telling us what you do with PreonLab and specifically with PreonPy.
I love music, both listening and playing. There are actually a couple of instruments I’ve played in my life. Starting with the trumpet over to guitar and drums. Currently I still play drums, and I’m learning a little bit of piano when I come to it. Also, electronic sound synthesis is a topic I’m very interested in.
