About me

I think one of my main themes is to take complex things and making them more accessible to others,
whether by explaining, creating a tool or making a helper library doesn’t really matter. I want
others to shine.

I like to know how things are implemented because this makes it easier to choose the correct
tool for the job. If you need super optimized graphics effects on a mobile phone then let's
implement it on the GPU or with ARM assembly, but in most cases higher level languages will result
in code that is faster to develop and easier to maintain.

Today I am intrigued by the UX in API design, like how can we make API:s that are easier to 
remember and produces better results, or how helper functions can open up new thought paths without
sacrifying versatility of the underlying design.
