I have been messing around with computers and music for as long as I remember. Building meaningful products together with talented people is my passion. I love mentoring, sharing knowledge, and excel in working full-stack with web technologies. MSc in Computer Science from the Technical University of Denmark.

This is my portfolio where I gather random bits and pieces. I hope you find something useful in my attempt to fight digital sharecropping.

Abandoning the mothership

December 16, 2015 • 6 minute read

It was time to pour into our front-end code the same poison we gave our back-end systems, splitting it all apart into maintainable chunks. Our vision was to make each feature team at issuu.com own, build and deploy its front-end code autonomously—and to make things that ought to be trivial actually trivial!

I enjoy giving talks

Rethinking front-end development at issuu.com

At the Frontend Conference (May 2016)

As frameworks come and go and best practices see constant change, it is increasingly challenging to make confident decisions about client-side code. We present our experiences in search for the right abstractions and architecture optimized for change. We also elaborate on how selecting the React ecosystem for our stack improved our workflow and product quality, as well as examine problems we faced.
