After high school he studied at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg in Germany, and at the University of Waterloo in Canada; he graduated with a diploma in Mechanical Engineering. Harri started programming on an Apple II, and soon turned his hobby into a source of income, providing maintenance and consultancy services to local businesses. After discovering Linux, Harri joined the "KDE" project, where he eventually implemented a JavaScript interpreter – this interpreter was adopted for use in KDE's web browser "Konqueror", and is now also used by Apple in its Safari browser, and served as the starting point for WebKit's JavaScript interpreter. Harri began working as a software engineer at Trolltech AS in Oslo in the summer of 2000. During the next three years he oversaw the portability of the Qt GUI toolkit to a wide variety of different compilers and operating systems, including HP-UX and AIX. In addition, he implemented Qt's original SVG support, and was involved in Trolltech's quality assurance process. Harri was also a member of the Qt Script for Applications (QSA) team.
