We do post occasional news and progress reports to Delphi Developer on Facebook, the original and largest community for Delphi developers on social media.
I must stress that I am active on Facebook 24/7 since I run several developer groups there.
So if you need to get in touch with me quickly, PM me via messenger or leave a message for me on Patreon.
About the author
I am an unorthodox, hyper creative and at times passionate software developer. My computing background is varied among many types of projects. I began my programming adventure on the now ancient ZX-81 at the age of 10.
I am initially self-taught and only took higher education as a formality. For me, being self-taught truly is a great advantage, because I’m used to figuring things out and solving problems outside the box.
Background and expertise
My list of projects and areas of expertise are varied but they all revolve around Object Pascal, which is my programming language of preference -although I can gladly work in C# or anything else you can throw at me.
I have a three year art degree (RE videregående), six years studying comparative religion via Sarah Lawrence, NYC (remote study) – as well as four years of computer science (Næringsakademiet, Norway). But education aside, my main interest has always been Object Pascal. So far I have been extremely lucky to make a living from my innovative Delphi creations, written from scratch using nothing but object pascal.
Most of my work rotate around large-scale Microsoft Windows services, processing terabytes of data in a broad variety of forms. I have also created and published my own invoicing system (Norwegian only), architected an objective database engine, created a pascal compiler, designed an RTL from scratch, made a desktop search engine – and a cloud backup system.
I am a certified Delphi Expert and a registered Embarcadero MVP. I also worked for Embarcadero for two years as their SCE for Europe, North-Africa and Asia.
