Meet Tom!

Meet Tom!

Did someone say co-founder?

Everyone, please meet Tom, MFractors newest co-founder 👋

Meet Tom

Tom and I are good mates and work together at JobAdder. He has exceptional skill in backend development, Visual Studio Windows extensions, Xamarin and Roslyn; he both complements and strengthens my own skillsets.

And most importantly, he’s a hella lot of fun to have a beer with 🍻

It’s been a wild, 2-year ride creating MFractor from nothing to its current form! But, it’s reached a tipping point where MFractor is just too much work for one person.

Therefore, to continue my vision of a mobile first ReSharper, “I” must become “we”.

In addition to bringing Tom on board, I have dropped down to 4 days per week at JobAdder to focus on growing MFractor. I owe JobAdders CEO, Brett Iredale, an enormous thank you for being so supportive of MFractor.

Over the coming months, Tom and I are doing a big development push. Initially, we want to make sure you know how to use MFractor. We are adding handy weekly tips, an onboarding window to teach you the essentials, a professional product installer, thorough documentation, video training and much, much more.

And did I mention we are working on a bunch of bad-ass features for Xamarin.Forms, Android and C#?

We are both incredibly excited for the future of MFractor. Watch this space, great things are brewing.
