So – what’s this site about? Quite simply, this blog is a dedicated place to store some important findings and tips that I and my colleagues have found in our daily work, so that they wouldn’t be scattered around DropBox, OneNote, OneDrive, e-mail, post-it-notes and multiple flavors of version controls.

Quite a few of the posts are actually based on someone else’s work that I’ve felt needed to be saved somewhere and maybe enhanced a bit, but I’ve tried to give credit where credit is due and mention the original source.

Lately, most posts are about the Microsoft’s stack, as it occupies most of my days nowadays. Also, it’s a fun and varying stack to work with! 🙂 I feel like Microsoft’s really taking it somewhere.

Who’s this guy?

I’m a laid back tech fellow with passionate relation to pretty much anything related to Software Business or Commercial Law. I’ve been a freelancer web developer since I was 14 years. I have been thanked for my social skills, ability to learn new frameworks and languages and my rather large collection of pretty unconventional knowledge regarding mostly accounting. I’m by no means usability design expert, but I’m pretty good at usability testing and evaluation. 

I have over 10 years of experience from both web-based software development and accounting. During my master’s program I majored in IT and minored in Financing and Commercial Law. After graduating, I went on to become a PhD student, but there isn’t that much to talk about that yet.

SharePoint, Usability, Agile Software Development, Photography, Financing, Accounting, Entrepreneurship. I suppose those words sum most of my professional life up pretty neatly – I often work on multiple projects at once, and am interested in quite a few things.

And what’s he doing?

That’s the most interesting question, isn’t?

I work as a Solutions Architect at Blue Meteorite Ltd. (an independent subsidiary of Fujitsu). “What’s that supposed to mean”, you ask? Ha, I wish I knew! Mostly I wrestle with stuff that’s somehow related to something technical, but sometimes I’m also managing our advertising campaigns, doing usability testing or analyzing usage data from different websites.

At Blue Meteorite, we make Valo Intranet, that has won international awards and is in use around the world. Check out more info at https://www.valointranet.com !

I’m also involved with Norppandalotti Software (web development) and ALTER Ltd (Virtual Reality is the future, after all!)

In addition to doing some fun software engineering stuff, I do taxes, play games and shoot guns.
