Jimmy Thompson

Manchester, United Kingdom


Age: 23

I'm a software developer and a final year student at Manchester Metropolitan University doing a Bachelors in Computer Science, recently returning from a placement at CDL and - as of July 2014 - a Graduate Developer for ThoughtWorks.

Whilst not studying, you can usually catch me breaking things in Ruby, Python or Go. I've been lucky enough to write about my experiences and flex my skills on numerous projects as well as attend several hackathons including Hack Manchester, StudentHack and Hacked.io. I also contribute to several open source projects on Github, as well as act as Chairman of the MMU Computing Society.
