    Developer

    Happiness relocated me and @mattiasjo (Mattias Johansson) to Stockholm, to work for a short period of time on a short deadline project with Viasat (a local satellite TV broadcaster), on their latest Drupal distribution and multi-language website. I worked mostly with building the TV-guide but also the live show listings.

    Developer

    In an agile team of four I worked as a Drupal developer for Wunderkraut in Gothenburg. We worked mainly with larger size projects of Drupal distributions — and in the team I quickly advanced to being in charge of deployment. On every second fridays we had innovation-friday, thats when we had time to work on contrubuted Drupal modules and patches.

    Masters Thesis

    Me and @silence150 (Josef Ottosson) worked together for inUse at Kungsportsplatsen in Gothenburg, with a tool for creating personas in the browser. In javascript we built a multi-line editor for SVG and a drag-n-drop tool for creating personas, that could be exported to AI, EPS or PDF for print — as the demand in our user studies was very high for printing and putting up on the wall.

    Bachelor Student

    Studying Computer Science at Chalmers was a great experience as the courses spanned so many different areas, which steered my in the path that I am right now. To mention a few courses, I learned about control theory, data structures, databases, collage grade mathematics, algorithms and managing effiency as well as parallelism in code. I would highly recommend the masters program at Chalmers, in beautiful Gothenburg, Sweden.
