About finally a homepage
My origins are in Vienna/Austria but I live in Stockholm/Sweden.
I develop software since the mid nineties of the last century. It is an exciting and interesting job, sometimes also a little crazy, but I still like it. Mostly I am involved in C++ projects on Linux, but I also work on Windows and OSX, using other programming languages as well.
In recent time I developed a huge interest in automatization and tooling, CI/CD and devops.
I like to spend my spare time together with my family. When time is left I am in front of a computer or a book, for fun and for learning purpose. I am also very actively involved in the local C++ developer community, what consumes a huge part of my available time left.
- Some visible results from my spare time and hobby activities
This site, with my blog :-)
I do not do as much writing as I would like to do theses days, but maybe, and hopefully, this will change.
The swedencpp youtube channel
I learned how to edit videos and the results can be seen at youtube. There are also some of my talks among the recordings. I like this kind of activity a lot since it is very different to my programming and other IT related tasks.
The swedencpp website
swedencpp is a nodejs application with a html frontend. I am somehow proud about that since it is something different to what I usually do. When time allows it, I will add some more functionality.
My bitbake tutorial.
A intro to bitbake. This page has more than 1000 views per month and is also under the top search results at google for a bitbake tutorial. This makes me very proud;-), but also means I need to keep this document up to date, since bitbake changes over time.
sbbdep, (Slack Build Binary Dependencies)
The tool for exploring binary runtime dependencies on Slackware and Slackware based systems. This tool has some real world users. sbbdep is a final project, only bugfixes are done but since some years it is pretty stable.
libsl3, a C++11 interface for sqlite3
A sqlite3 wrapper back from the time where C++11 was new :-)
Still a solid library and an example for how I think a library should look like, Unit test, 100% code coverage and a complete documentation.
Beside that, I am also active contributor to other open source projects. Usually when I use some tool, and need some functionality or find some issue, I just fix it and send the result upstream.
If you are interested what I do for living, there is some more info on my linkedin profile which I try to keep up to date, occasionally.
