Hello people, I am Tobin Harding. I code in the Linux environment. I like command line interfaces and statically typed languages. When I am trying to relax I listen to classical music, when I’m eating - jazz, and when getting excitable I like to listen to techno. I like learning things, mostly computer related things, but also jiu-jitsu. For health and giggles I do yoga, rock climb, ferment, and grow vegetables.
I currently work in the cryptocurrency space at CoBloX Research Lab in Sydney. We are trying to solve atomic trustless swap across different ledgers i.e., we are trying to make all blockchains inter-operable. I write Rust all day.
In the past I have done contracting work (under my company name Crowd Coded Pty Ltd). I also previously worked for a California startup called AppOrbit on their AppSwitch project. That meant writing networking code in Golang.
I maintain a Perl script within the Linux kernel tree and like to submit the odd kernel patch now and then.
I have undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in computer science as well as a two year software apprenticeship.
I live on the Central Coast of New South Wales Australia and have three children.
My favourite thing to do is hold my breath and swim under the ocean as far as I can.
