Hello, my name is Tom and I'm an applications developer. I don't currently have a background in conservation, but I'm looking to do more with my current set of skills in the area of conservation, hence why I'm here. I'm a big bird lover, and am always interested in learning more about them and other forms of wildlife!
My background and skillset is quite varied. I have been an applications developer for eight years, working on a variety of projects for both desktop and mobile devices. User interface and experience design is something that I specialise in, as is augmented and virtual reality. I also do electronic prototyping, mostly creating small devices that utilise sensor data to create useful every day tools. Connecting my application development skills with my electronic prototyping skills is something I'm constantly developing, especially when it comes to wireless communication between my hardware devices and mobile applications. I'm currently learning about machine learning too.
