My name is Mark Sinnathamby, and I am a tech lead at TIQRI, a hard core and cutting edge software engineering firm. I am also a passionate engineer, who loves coding, mentoring, and fueling technical innovation. In my previous tenures, I have worked as a developer at a product engineering company, a technical consultant in a Fortune 500 conglomerate, and also as a senior engineer for a startup in the design and manufacturing space, with work locations ranging from Sri Lanka, Singapore, and Japan.
My current area of research and development revolves around solution and enterprise architecture, big data, NoSQL, and machine learning. In recent days, I have also been involved with ‘Kids Can Code’, a wonderful initiative by TIQRI (www.kidscancode.lk) to help kids learn and understand all about coding and programming computers.
In my spare time, I experiment with video game programming, operating system internals, and compiler design, out of pure fun and curiosity. I also stargaze and try my hand at amateur astronomy, using a refractive telescope.
