Meet our fourth winner of the Tyk Side Project Fund - @liyasthomas, for the project Postwoman. Liyas started programming at the age of 15! From studying computer science engineering at university to building open source projects, bringing together and working with contributors from different parts of the world- it has been quite a journey for Liyas.
The main reason why I started contributing to open source projects was self-development. Companies are looking for your involvement in different projects focussed on practical experience, not just your university grades. So one of the reasons that I turned to open source development was so that I could get a good day job.

If you’re looking to play around with APIs and build requests without ever going out of your browser or downloading other apps, do check out Postwoman: https://postwoman.io/
The project is also open source so if you’d like to contribute, check out their GitHub repo.
