Your passionate hacker of everyday

Hej, Hallo and Hi!

My name is Tom Quast and I like to call myself a hacker. But don't worry, I prefer following definition:

hacker noun /hækə(r)/

An individual capable of solving complex non-intuitive problems in a seemingly intuitive manner. The processes and techniques used are not necessarily methodical to the observer, but yet achieve results significantly and consistently faster than known experience would predict. Thereby is 'hacker' a positive term for a person who can push both software and hardware beyond what it was designed to do.

I was born and raised in Germany and moved to Denmark 5 years ago to study of which I spent one semester abroad in the USA. Technology has always fascinated me; how it changes our life and the way we interact with each other are questions that are more relevant than ever. My academic background is in the HCI field, my study 'IT and Productdevelopment' is a collaboration between the computer science department and the architecture school in Aarhus. Thereby the borders between computer science and design are blurry to me. For me the users and their context are the center of my work and programming and design are tools to support them.

I am always up for a good chat, so shoot me an email to if you want to discuss work or tell a joke.

Throughout my study I have taken a wide range of courses, reaching from algorithms and datastructures to physical design classes.
Many of these resulted in projects shown on this page.
Following i have compiled a list of all my courses together with a link to its project if it's posted on this website.
