Hi, welcome to my repo! 🤓

I'm a self-taught developer who works as a senior communications advisor at Iteo.no. I have more than 30 years experience as an IT journalist and editor (PC World, Tek.no, Digi.no, DN.no), and have been interested in coding since I got my first computer - a Commodore 64. Actually, I got my first job by writing a 6510 assembly course for a computer magazine, and did some hobby projects in Turbo Pascal and C during the late 80s and early 90s. Good times...

In 2018 i wanted to pick up programming again, and I set a goal for myself to learn as much as I could about modern web development, with focus on Javascript, HTML, CSS and modern frameworks like React.js. I spent a couple of hours every day while commuting, in addition to weekends and holidays, trying to learn as much as possible. A lot of courses, both beginner and advanced. I also finished the MIT 6.00x computer science course, with focus on data structures and algorithms (mostly in Python). Read more about my journey here (in Norwegian)

I have good skills in vanilla Javascript and Node.js, HTML and CSS. However, I have focused mostly on React.js - and React based frameworks like Gatsby.js and Next.js. I've worked mostly on the frontend, but have a good understanding of the backend - and have set up servers and APIs in Node.js (with Express) or as serverless functions in AWS Lambda or Netlify Functions.

My latest project

My biggest project so far has been to build a web site for my local housing association (you can see it here: https://gartnerihagen-askim.no. It's built with React/Gatsby.js, Contentful (as a headless CMS), Chakra UI and with Auth0 authentication to protect private routes of the web site. You can read about it on my personal blog (in Norwegian). The source code is here.
