I'm a programmer and entrepreneur.
I have done back-end development in a digital media company in Copenhagen for about 4 years, specifically with regard to Java (WebObjects, Apple), metadata aggregation (streams), and file storage (huge quantity of music and video files).
I have been the tech lead in building a CMS/eCommerce solution, particularly involving front-end and back-end modules architecture. As an example, I have provided solutions that would enable one to write CSS for a module only knowing it would not interfere with other CSS on the site. Build on PHP + micro frameworks and I have contributed to the OS community for some of these frameworks.
I worked with Node.js a lot 3-4 year on personal projects, including my latest initiative: tinycarrier.com. With Node.js, I have done projects for web, API, workers, and with several service integrations.
I have been living in Kathmandu, Nepal for the last 7 years and within this period, I have managed to start a restaurant business with great success as well as an apartment hotel, which is currently on its 2nd year and is doing very well. These projects has taken me away from IT development for a year and a half professionally, but not in a private capacity where I'm always reading about and trying out code, languages, and frameworks.
I am doing freelance work now. I was hired to resuscitate some badly designed systems and horribly written code by untrained people coded over the duration of three years. Rather than simply fixing or rebuilding the same app, I had several talks with the client over what was absolutely crucial for his business to generate profit. As a consequence, my client and I agreed to discard everything that his previous unskilled developers worked on and base his business on a couple of open source systems with a little coding needed in time. The point being, you can solve problems outside "the box" as well.
