I'm a full-stack web engineer focusing on rich JavaScript applications using React, Angular and NodeJS. I prefer to work in an environment where frontends talk to backends via a well-defined API (like REST). I enjoy tuning build chains and spend a bit of time with opsy things like AWS, Docker and bash scripts.

Often, you can find me experimenting with the Internet of Things (IoT). I try to get microcontrollers and tiny computers to read sensors and talk to one another.

New Apple TV

Got myself a brand new Apple TV (4 Gen). The guys at Apple have reworked the UI and made the whole experience a lot slicker. My favourite feature so far is being able to control TV volume and turn on the tv from the AppleTV remote. Doesn't take much to make me happy. I intend to try making Apple TV helpful in my IoT experiments. Will try writing an app to see how much of a hub it can become for other devices in the house.
