Kyle Lam was an amazing person, someone who cared deeply for his friends and coworkers, and also a gifted software developer. He was an understated presence but he radiated a bright energy that fueled his passion for technology. Kyle's genius, driven by his innate curiosity and creativity, delighted everyone he worked with. He was always open to treading new paths and frequently surprised his colleagues with a solution to a problem nobody else thought about. It was never about what couldn’t be done, but more about inventing new ways to solve problems. Kyle was so enthusiastic about technology, he kept on the bleeding edge of everything and often would talk about (or bring in) the latest and greatest gadgets. Then, he would try to build something new based on that gadget. His hacker spirit won industry awards in advertising for the creative experiences he built for people, often pushing the limits of devices and platforms. Kyle never let these successes go to his head; he always carried himself with grace and humility. He was a mentor to many and always available to lend a helping hand.
Kyle Lam passed away on June 30, 2022. To honor Kyle's memory, Infillion is creating a scholarship to support a student that upholds the “hacker spirit” and ethos of curiosity, experimentation and generosity – which Kyle lived so fully.
Infillion is starting the fund with $5K and will match up to another $5k of contributions from Infillion employees. The final lump sum will be divided into three awards distributed early in 2023, 2024, and 2025. Each year, the applicant who best personifies Kyle’s spirit will be selected to receive that year’s scholarship.
