Independent Software Developer

Hi, I'm Marcus. I help companies like yours to solve problems with software.

Areas of Expertise

Programming

I wrote my first BASIC program in 1981 and have been paid to program since 1996. I have vast experience writing full stack software for the web and has written production code in Java, Python, JavaScript, Kotlin, Clojure, Ruby and Smalltalk. And of course, I know HTML, CSS and SQL as well.

Architecture

I have built and designed applications on various versions of Open Source software stacks based on Linux and databases like PostgreSQL. Since the end of the 00-ies I have used cloud providers such as AWS, Google Cloud and Digital Ocean to deliver these solutions.

Methods and Ways

I was an early adopter of what was later to be called agile methodologies and was a founder of Agila Sverige, Swedens first conference on this topic. As agile grew mainstream and the meaning of the term went diluted I choose to step away from agile as an industry, but I still work by the ideals of the early movement. This means test driven development, continuous delivery and deployment and an adherence to a well functioning workplace. If asked kindly I still give talks about methodology.

Education, Speaker

I have spoken at numerous conferences and have worked as a teacher in all of my areas of expertise. Teaching and speaking is a complimentary activity for me as I like to speak from experience.
