My name is Mark Sinnathamby, and I am a tech lead at TIQRI, a hard core and cutting edge software consultancy/services firm. I am also a passionate software engineer, who loves coding, mentoring, and fueling technical innovation. My experience spans from being a developer at a product engineering company, a technical consultant for a Fortune 500 conglomerate, a senior engineer at a startup providing IOT/SaaS/Analytics in the manufacturing space, to currently being the technical lead at TIQRI. Throughout my career, I have been stationed and worked in locations ranging from Sri Lanka, Singapore, Japan, and Norway.
My current area of research and development revolves around solution and enterprise architecture, big data analytics, data intensive distributed systems, and machine learning. I am also involved with ‘Kids Can Code’, a fantastic initiative by TIQRI (www.tiqri.com/sustainability) to help kids learn and understand all about computers and programming. In my spare time (or when time permits) I experiment with video game programming, operating system internals, and compiler design. I am also an amateur astronomer and vintage computer enthusiast (including retro-computer games).
