Who am I?

Thomas Touhey's profile picture

Thomas TouheyBorn on the 28th of December, 1996 (21 y.o.)

I am a self-educated computer science enthousiastic who loves tinkering everything. I make some free software, and manage my websites and some services. I love embedded systems, the C and Python languages, Linux and its distributions, and Internet (web and other protocols).

My career (only studies for now) is the following:

I also am a benevolent animator since september, 2017, in the “groupe d’Yerres et de Demain”, which is one of the many groups at the Scouts et Guides de France, a member of the Scoutisme Français.

Besides, my main projects right now are:

  • the P7 project, a project to free the software surrounding CASIO calculators such as communication or file manipulating software;
  • libcarrot, a libc for plenty of little architectures, platforms and compilers.
  • textoutpc, a Python module for translating BBcode into other languages such as HTML or Lightscript for Planète Casio.

I’m still using github for my main projects, but slowly switch to a software forge I restored recently using Gitolite and cgit.

I am on the following platforms/communities:

  • LinkedIn (thomas-touhey) to develop my professional relations;
  • Twitter (@thecakefive), where I talk about random things to nice people;
  • Mastodon (, because a free, decentralized and ethical social network is freakin’ cool;
  • Planète Casio, THE place for french CASIO calculators hackers;
  • TI-Planet, for being aware of what is going on with calculators (CASIO and other brands), and with the laws/abuses of it;
  • Casiopeia, Code Walrus and Cemetech, because the fact that we don’t have the same mothertongue won’t keep us from hacking together;
  •’s forum, because old machines are quite cool.
  • Gitlab (cakeisalie5), for being able to contribute to some projects.

You also can contact me on one of the oldest federations of the Internet, the e-mail system, on

And in case you were wondering, this website runs on Jekyll. It originally ran on a heavily modified Researcher theme, although now it runs on a theme of my own.
