I really like the web, from the UI to the backend.

Nowadays I mainly get things done with JavaScript and Elixir.

Have solid experience with the Node.js runtime, and I am quite productive with vanilla-JS and various libraries and frameworks on the client-side, with or without TypeScript.

Worked on Phoenix backends, built event-driven software systems leveraging the BEAM with Elixir.

I also get things done in Kotlin and Python.

Had the opportunity to work with Java, Ruby (on Rails) and PHP too.

It was also very refreshing and I learned a ton when I experimented with Haskell (FP101 MOOC of Uni Delft), Elm and Go.

Open-Source

Open-source has been a part of me since the very beginning.

My OSS can be found on my GitHub profile.

Coding in all kinds of tech fields that bring value to me, read IoT, Crypto, Bots, Apps, CLI utilities, Automation of all kinds.

In 2021 I was interested in web analytics and self-hosting.

That’s where Minimal analytics was born.

In April 2020 I made a fast static site generator and called it devblog

mega-scraper aims to be a simple website scraping tool with proxy support, request blocking and various optimizations.

In the field of IoT, I made a watering system with a raspberry pi, camera, temperature and moisture sensors. the communication was handled via telegram and interactive buttons.
With the help of a bot I can water, request a snapshot or video of the garden and a timelapse of the past days.
Most importantly this enables me to water my plants remotely and seeing their current state through an image sent on a private telegram channel.

In the past I have contributed in the following repos
