Now

Now page is a place to tell you about the things I focus on right now, in no particular order. I’ll try to keep this up to date best I can. Inspired by the Derek Sivers’ nownownow project.

  • Working at Dude as a founder, CTO, and a full-time full stack developer. My daily tasks consist of front end (advanced SCSS/CSS mostly), accessibility testing, UI testing, servers and sysop stuff (we host everything ourselves), a bit of marketing like blogging and social media and even some back-end (PHP/WordPress). On top of this there’s the regular entrepreneurial shit.
  • I’m passionate about accessibility, inclusivity, open source, mental health, CSS, SCSS, typography, command line, servers, geeky stuff.
  • Openso(u)rcerer, founder-developer of the popular Air-light WordPress theme. Check out the company GitHub and my personal GitHub profile, they are always up to date.
  • Writing daily journal in Finnish, see my Logbook.
  • Blogging at least once a month. On top of this web development focused blog in English (rarely updated, sorry), I have a couple of blogs in Finnish.
  • Born and raised in Jyväskylä, Finland. Read about me in Finnish here. Currently living in Jyväskylä downtown with my 8-year-old son, 12-year-old daughter, 30-something wife (age is just a number “😄”). It’s nice here in Finnish lakeland district, see for yourself.
  • Coding CSS/HTML/JS or using command line on (almost) daily basis. Sometimes experimenting with JavaScript frameworks and Python.
  • I like running and walking. 👟 Started a habit of working out 4 times or 30 km per week on June 26th, 2021. See more on my Strava Athlete profile.
  • I love movies. Redesigned my movie blog on September 2021. Over 3000 movies reviewed and counting. I also rate on IMDb and Trakt.
  • Socially active on IRC and Mastodon. Using Mastodon as my main social media service. Hosting my own Mastodon server, too. Occasionally instagramming. I don’t use Facebook or WhatsApp. I rarely use other social medias, sometimes LinkedIn if I’m forced to. I have a hunch 70% of my posts are in Finnish and the rest in English.
  • Playing Overwatch as Qllervo.
  • Reading daily, from 50 to 100 books per year. Currently reading mostly non-fiction. Occasional progress updates at Goodreads.
  • Producing dreamy synthwave music. It’s on-off depending how much free time I have but definitely not a dead project. Check out Streetgazer at SoundCloud or Spotify.
  • Contributing in WordPress community somehow on weekly basis, check out my WordPress.org profile. Organizing WordPress Jyväskylä Meetups. Because of COVID-19 the community activity is nonexistent in my little town called Jyväskylä.
  • I want to write a book. I have couple of non-fiction book ideas, one draft has 300 pages. No time and no publisher so this project is in ice for now.
