I am Sampo Niskanen, a software engineer living in Finland. I am an avid supporter of Open Source, agile methodologies, clean code, and am always interested in improving my own ways of working.
For my Master’s thesis I developed the model rocket simulator OpenRocket, and currently lead the continuing development efforts of many contributors. I am an active member in the Finnish Astronautical Society, and especially it’s rocketry activities.
