The name’s Tomas Persson, I’m a swedish dude who loves computers, programming, technology and the Internets (and also my girlfriend Amanda and of course our dog Dixie). We live in Lund, Sweden.
I first fell in love 1997, it was a Intel Pentium 166 Mhz MMX with 256 (later upgraded to 512) MB RAM. It’s been downhill since then and now I’m an Apple fanboy, doing all my crap using a MacBook Pro and I’m most likely never to own a pc ever again.
I work as a consultant at Knowit Solutions AB and have done so since 2007. My assignments have mostly been mobile oriented (Sony Ericsson, Golden Gekko) but I have also been doing other stuff (like much of the now redesigned search page at IKEA). Now I’m back at Sony Mobile (no more Ericsson) hacking and slashing in the Android framework (frameworks/base) all day long.
Like the true geek that I am, I also code on my spare time and have produced the following:
Downer – Is a light yet powerful Markdown editor for Mac OSX. It has a minimalistic tabbed UI with a split view for previewing your document as you type (you can toggle which pane to show). Support for syntax colored fenced code blocks and a “rich text” editor is one of many features in this application.
Quests is a simple OSX application for easily consuming RESTful services to make sure your own and other API’s work as they should. It’s sports a simple tabbed user interface and support for OAuth (v1, v2 will be available in a future update) and Basic Auth authenticated sources as well as custom headers and such. It’s available in the Mac App Store.
BattStatt – Pretty much the first typography styled Android widget out there. It displays your current battery charge in a literal way, like, “twentyfour percent” or “Fully charged”. No longer maintained though.
Tajm – The same type of widget but as a clock. Same as BattStatt, no longer maintained.
