Full stack web developer

About

I’m a web developer, with a background in software and general product development.

This site is my blog mostly about full stack web development and enhancing privacy, anonymity, and security using FLOSS tools as well as related topics.

WEB DEVELOPMENT

BACK-END

As I no longer run Windows I’m switch from ASP.Net MVC to WordPress, LEMP stack (Linux, Nginx, MariaDB/MySQL, and PHP) and Node.js for back-end web development.

While switching to ASP.Net Core would be the obvious choice it isn’t used widely enough in Denmark to make sense for me professionally yet, therefore I chose to go the PHP route instead.

Node.js also isn’t used that much in Denmark, but I’m interested in it as a hobby though I’ll mainly focus on PHP.



FRONT-END
I have mostly worked with Razor views, some HTML5, CSS3, vanilla JavaScript, TypeScript, and a bit of Angular 2+.

Moving forward I’m focusing on HTML5, CSS3, vanilla JavaScript, React, Angular 2+, and WordPress.


DATABASES

I’ve mostly used MSSQL and am now switching to MariaDB/MySQL for relational databases.

I have also used MongoDB and Neo4j a bit and am working on getting better at those for when I need a document- or graph- database.

FREE/LIBRE AND OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE

I think free and open source software and hardware is a good idea and try to use it whenever practicable.

I prefer Linux and run Arch Linux at home and usually either Debian or Ubuntu on servers.
