About Thomas Zahn

Having grown up with a living room that was essentially the office of his mother’s software start-up in the 80s, Thomas is a dyed-in-the-wool software engineer. In the past, he has worked for large outfits such as Microsoft Research and Nokia as well as for specialised engineering shops and start-ups. He lives in Berlin with his wife and two kids, and loves tennis and hiking (though, bizarrely, he constantly seems to find no time to do much of either those two). Thomas holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Freie Universität Berlin.
