Move fast break things.

I guess the most important thing that I want this page to say is that I am not one thing. I heard Naval Ravikant say that humans aren't meant to focus their entire lives on doing one thing. I wholeheartedly agree. We are an incredibly versatile species, and it would be a shame to waste that versatility.

I love reading, sailing, surfing, being a digital bromad, standing behind the decks, worrying about political malpractice, and watching kurzgesagt.

I've worked a lot with .NET core in tandem with postgres or mongo. Laravel is my former lover, but after discovering the power of C# in .NET core I can't help but love C# more. PHP will always have a special place in my heart though, and would still love working with it. React is my favorite frontend framework so far, however the new Vue composition API looks like it could steal React's thunder.

My most pleasing development experience was probably deploying a kubernetes cluster on rancher. That piece of software is so magnificent I could honestly cry. If you ever want to chat about it I'm always available.

One of my more interesting obsessions would be Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. It is the most concrete translation of stoicism I've ever come across. Though I've shelved the release of Parley a bit, I still believe in bringing the therapy to more people. Feeling good should be for everyone. Hit me up if you're interested!

My latest venture is loopground, and snugly fits into my philosophy of the 4 hour work week. Only four hours a week are spent on the dreadful bits, the rest can be categorized as hobby stuff. After a few intense months of building, it's now time to start generating revenue! Super stoked about this:)

Live long and prosper,
Ian
