Some things about me, roughly in descending order of assumed relevance to a random reader:
I’m a Finnish guy in my thirties. I’m employed as a software developer, currently doing iOS work. I don’t yet have any apps of my own out there, but I hope to change that eventually. Prior to the current gig I did web stuff with Python (read: Django). I still dabble with the web side of things occasionally, though keeping up with a platform in such constant flux is proving difficult.
I don’t have deep technical skills, a computer science background or any mathematical abilities, so I don’t really self-identify as a Proper Programmer™. I try to compensate with meticulousness, an eye for usability, a reasonable sense of code smell, an adequate sense of aesthetics and adherence to any best practices I happen to know about. It’s worked out OK so far.
I prefer fruit-emblazoned computing gear (adequate sense of aesthetics and all that). I’ve effectively moved all of my communication and consumption activities to iOS devices, keeping a Mac around only for development and other distinctly computery stuff.
Beyond that, I’m boring. Time permitting, I enjoy video games on all the current consoles as well as a PC. Modern, strategic board gaming is also one of my interests, both for the brain exercise and the social aspect. I play badminton once a week and go diving maybe once a year. And that’s roughly it. Sometimes I wish I was one of those superhuman renaissance men whose blog biographies are filled with stuff like cooking, conference speaking, extreme sports, painting with their feet, playing four instruments, taking care of five children while working on three startups and, I dunno, flying a jetpack or something. But alas.
I live in rural Southwestern Finland, sharing a home with my lovely wife and a cat.
I dislike most social media humbug, but Twitter kind of suits me, so I’m on it.
If you must, you can also send me an e-mail. I read everything I receive, but cannot guarantee a response.
