Hi, I'm

Tamas Dovenyi aka
Dövényi-Nagy Tamás

— in good old Hungarian. :D


Working as a researcher, I do all kinds of modelling and software development in the field of ecology, meteorology, etc. But that's probably not why you're here.

My latest hobbies are guitars, archery, karate, woodworking, speedcubing, custom keyboard design and logical layout optimization (i.e. shuffling the letters).

I documented my keyboard projects on golem.hu and write about this topic on kbd.news as well as in my weekly newsletters sent to 2,000 people (subscribe now).

Or you can find me as dovenyi on Reddit and pretty much in all the relevant communities.

Name break-down

In Hungary, just like e.g. in Japan and many East Asian countries, we start with the family name. That's the Dövényi-Nagy part.

And Tamás, my given name, is simply the Hungarian version of Thomas.
