About

Hello and welcome to my website! I currently work as a Software Developer at Loopon AB, where I develop backend and frontend software in Java, C, Swift, and PHP. I love programming, and I spend most of my time doing just that (or playing simulation videogames). I have already made tons of small aplications for myself, but only recently I built up enough knowledge to develop commercial level Apps.

I really like the Swift programming language, and it's currently my favorite. I also know a lot of Objective-C, C, Java, and PHP. I can write something in C#, VB.NET, Haskell, and Ruby. I have already used some other languages, but they already fell in the realms of oblivion inside my brain.


Experiments

In my spare time I like to work on coding experiments. Some become fully-fledged apps, others die right away. Some others are just too simple to become a product. Some of the latter will be posted in the list below.

  • Noto – May 2017

    A complete rewrite of my text editor for macOS (TipTyper), now completely written in Swift. It is still under development and should get its own page once it is released as a binary.

  • Voyagers Now – September 2013

    In September 2013, NASA announced that the Voyager 1 probe, launched in 1977, has passed the heliopause. This event caused some commotion on the internet and I, being a space geek, decided to create a simple hot site displaying how far both voyagers are from us. I used, with the propper permission, a JS script found in the NASA JPL website. The result is a simple diagram displaying the relative distance of the Voyager probes — and the planets — from the Earth and the Sun.

  • Mahjong Solitaire - June 2013 (updated in Jan 2017)

    I decided to implement a version of Mahjong Solitaire using nothing but Cocoa components. That's right, I wrote a game using a desktop API. And it's glorious. Have a try!

  • Objective-C Accessors – August 2014

    Just a little tool, completely unfinished, that I have made to automatically generate Objective-C @property accessors. It is still not ready to generate accessors to all kinds of properties, but it mostly works. I've made this after having to write a bunch of accessors for a single class file. I plan on making it look all nice when I have time.
