What do I do?
I’ve been coding professionally since 2008, more than 10 years now. I have been working both as an employee and contractor in public and private sector.
I’ve done desktop clients, web clients, batch processing systems and backends.
Since I wrote my first lines of Visual Basic code in my school days I have used many different languages and frameworks. I have found that coding is about more than the actual code though. I constantly try to improve both within and without the confines of the IDE to better myself in the hard and the soft parts of that which is the engineering craft.
Finally, though I do enjoy to tinkering on my own, building real products is seldom one man show. As such, I believe that it is incredibly important to work together and share knowledge. Which is what this blog is partly about. Giving back to the community that’s given me so much.
Sharing is caring
There are so many brilliant people out there in the world. Since I started developing I’ve been saved so many times by both framework creators and the StackOverflow community alike. I’ve a huge respect for the open source community and everyone that simply gives without asking anything back. So I want to do the same. I want to share both my experience in the form of my thoughts and experiences in this blog and also the code I put together.
Some stuff I’ve written and I’d love for you use
It’s not much but in my free time I’ve put together a few projects that are still alive. I’m thrilled to see anyone using the stuff I’ve written or even perusing it so if you can spare the time and effort.
Heading into 2021, I want to make my app, JReader, bring in some cash to bear its own weight and maybe you want to help out? Frankly put, JReader began as a half-hearted project to see if I could launch and market an app that would potentially make some money. The...
My current project is releasing soon (yay!) and everyone is posting bugs. I wish there were fewer bugs reported of course 😂 but it is great to see so many things found before our customers get their hands the product. To effectively fix these bugs it is important our...
It might be easier to split a cake but it’s not impossible! I encourage doing as small PRs as possible. Preferably under 200 lines of code. But how is this possible? If you have a big feature or so? It may contain loads of code. That’s completely fine. We don’t need...
