Hey! Looks like you've stumbled into my small corner of GitHub.

I'm your usual hobby-turned-career programmer, who loves learning new things and trying out the latest tech whenever I get the chance. Professionally, I develop and maintain web applications using various languages and frameworks, ranging from Java and Spring Boot to NodeJS and C# and .NET. I'm a big fan of ReactJS for frontend development, and I'm more than happy to experiment with the latest "Javascript framework of the week", so to speak. :wink:

Apart from that, I enjoy hiking when the weather is warm and skiing when it's not. Traveling and sightseeing are another source of enjoyment whenever I get the chance. Cooking is a recent hobby of mine, though it's still in the very early stages (read: beware anything I make - for now!).

Check out my GitHub to see what I've been up to. I also used to be active on SourceForge back in the day. Since then I've migrated most of my older, inactive projects over to GitHub instead. Even though I don't really plan on continuing said projects, they might still be useful as a reference for myself and others.

These are mostly random, off the cuff thoughts and ideas I figured I'd share.
