About

Thomas Lackemann is an entrepreneur and software engineer from Long Island.

Tom has been building applications for the web for a little over a decade, integrating new and old technologies alike to make beautiful applications that meet the goals of business and user expectations. Over the years, he’s learned and been burned by almost every technology which has helped him make better decisions about an application’s technology of choice. Tom’s preferred languages are Node.js, PHP, Go, and Python. He’s currently learning Rust and so far loving it.

Tom is a homebrewer, a triathlete, linux-enthusiast, and a classically trained pianist. He enjoys really long walks in the woods (bring your own tent) and wants to hike part of the Appalachian trail. In his spare time, Tom is building a video game he also hopes to release in the next year or so. When away from his keyboard, Tom can be found playing fetch with his two dogs, Riley and Jake, or exploring the food spots around Jersey and NYC with his girlfriend, Kim.

Tom is the founder and lead developer for Rapid App, a Node.js consulting company and Power Virtual TableTop, a virtual tabletop for roleplaying games online. He operates both remotely from Jersey City, NJ.
