About Thomas: 

What is your Background?

I've been programming since I was 7-8 years old.  My father bought the family an Amiga 500 when I was a child and I fell in love with AmigaBasic and all the possibilities it presented.  I entered the IT Industry in 1999 as a Signal Operator for the Canadian Forces.  This gave me a very raw view of what computers can do in the worst conditions, and seeded the dedicated and professional attitude I have to this day.  While with the Canadian Forces I served one tour in Afghanistan with the Canadian Forces Joint Signal Regiment (CFJSR).  In 2007 I was hired by ISM Canada, an IBM company, where I've worked as a Developer for the last 6 years.  In 2011 I became the first person in Saskatchewan
