My name is Thomas Balthazar, I'm a developer living in Brussels and I co-run a micro-label called b.y_records. You can contact me, follow me and fork my code.

# Projects

I'm currently looking for a new challenge. I love writing software in Go and Ruby.
Here are some of the projects I worked on recently.

## Manyguide

Manyguide is an iOS app that connects people with local guides in Brussels and Amsterdam. I developed the backend (REST API, guide and community manager dashboards) using Ruby on Rails.

## Cryptocat

Cryptocat is a free software that aims to provide an open, accessible Instant Messaging environment that encrypts your conversations and works right in your browser. I developed the (now retired) iOS app..

## Kickoff

Kickoff is a Mac and iPhone app that allows you to chat and share tasks with your team in realtime. I mainly worked on the synchronisation component for the Mac and iPhone apps, and I developed the iPhone app.

## Previous iOS projects

Before that, I worked for the European Parliament to help develop an iPad app for their paperless initiative, I developed the (now retired) iPad app for The Word Magazine and TapPlace, a (now retired) iPhone app that helped you to bookmark the places you love (back in the days when iPhone OS 3.2 was hip!).
