So, I noticed that I need to update my presentation somewhat. It's been a while since I wrote the Hello World blog post, and avid readers might have seen the New job post. Summing up, this is who I am and what I do.
My name is Thomas Lundström. I am at the time of this writing 29 years old and live in Malmö in the southern part of Sweden. I work as a consultant at Softhouse, one of the best software development offices in the region of Skåne. The last years I've mostly done work in the tech lead type of role in software development projects, but the technical role isn't the only thing that ensures success. That's why I always try to keep an eye for better processes.
Tech-wise I slant somewhat towards development in the Microsoft ecosystem. Since joining Softhouse I've done stuff in the Java EE/J2ME space as well, and I actually quite like it (except for the number of target platforms in J2ME; developing for 4 browsers is nothing compared to that). I try to stay in mental shape, so in my free time I play around with stuff other than what I do at work. Right now I'm doing some lab stuff with Ruby on Rails, and I really like it; I even described it like this: I work with .NET, but I have an affair on the side with Ruby.
Before joining Softhouse I worked as a developer at Qbranch in Malmö, and before that I was a Program Manager at RemoteX in Stockholm, Sweden. I have M.Sc. degree in Industrial Engineering and Management ("Industriell Ekonomi") from the Linköping Institute of Technology (i98 for those of you who wants to know).
When I'm not doing tech stuff I try to keep in physical shape; badminton, floorball, weight-lifting and running are the sports I currently do. Other than that I like cooking and baking; preferably I bake with sourdough.
