For my employer I mainly develop C#, WPF, F#, C/AL (Client/server Application Language) for Dynamics NAV (with some .Net interop) and less often now, Progress 4GL. On the rare occasion I write iPhone/iPad and Android applications for my employer.

Outside of work I'm very interested in Elixir and F#. Lately I have dabbled with Phoenix, Elm and (not as recently) Clojure.
Really I'm very interested in functional programming in general. Haskell is on the bucket list.

Check out the top 100 users in a given tag (helpful for learning interesting things about tags you are interested in).

Interesting books I'd recommend:

  • Soft Skills (Life manual for software developers... Highly recommended!)
  • Dependency Injection in .Net (I'd say this is required reading for any .Net (or even Object Oriented) programmer).
  • The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development
  • Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software
  • The Annotated Turing - A Guided Tour Through Alan Turing's Historic Paper on Computability and the Turing Machine
  • Seven Languages in Seven Weeks
