Thomas Pinna

I'm finishing my master in Software Engineering this summer. As a software engineer I'm (obviously) interested in everything related to IT, but I'm also interested in entrepreneurship. On a personal level I like hiking, kayaking and traveling to the mountains or visiting a nice city.

EXPERIENCE

In the industry

Most of my experiences exists in student jobs, as I haven't completed my master yet. In many of these jobs I learned a variety of soft skills. For example, as a parking attendant I have learned to communicate with angry and unhappy people, and as a youth animator I learned about leadership and about communication with concerned people.
Past years, I've also gained experience in the IT-sector, which I will explain more thoroughly.

Appstrakt

As a student developer with appstrakt I worked on a project to automate dependency tracking. I created a python tool that looks for dependencies in a projects repositorie and gathered information about its license, its version and so on. I also created a frontend webpage that allowed a user to look for dependencies in a simple query like way.

Universiteit Antwerpen

I was hired at the university of Antwerp to make a feasibility study for the course "model driven engineering". For this study I implemented a railway simulation in metaDepth and AToMPM (a textual and a graphical mde environment).
