Drawing of my computer desk where we see an iMac with an open Terminal with Swift code snippets. On the shelf behind we can see programming books for Rust, Swift and JavaScript. The books are arranges vertically next to a small flower pot. The flower has big green leafes. A cup of steaming coffee sits on the desk, to the left of the iMac.

Ecosystems

I've been a full-stack developer for quite some time and I firmly believe that programming languages are tools, and one can use different combinations of tools depending on the task at hand! Here are the ones I like to use:

  • Development for mobile, desktop and the web using Swift, Kotlin, Rust and Elixir.
  • Cross-platform solutions with Kotlin Multiplatform and Tauri.
  • Web development and web experiences using JavaScript, CSS, HTML and React or Vue... WCAG.
  • It's hard to separate DevOps from development. I like reproducible deployments and love IaC tools or managing my own infrastructure using Docker and Ansible. I have experience using k8s as well, although I try to avoid it.

Here are some recent projects and libraries I've created or helped advance:
