experience

puppypride Agro IT
2023 and ongoing

During an internship at Agro IT I developed a web environment for RVDM, a realtime manure transport compliance system. The company liked what I built and hired me to develop it further as a sidejob. I then developed another system for hour and work registration for my graduation project, and was hired to continue as a software engineer after my studies. Now I help Agro IT transition their products to the cloud and develop new systems for customers.

puppypride Puppy Pride
2021 and ongoing

I am the lead developer of Puppy Pride since January of 2021. I develop and maintain Puppy Pride's social network, servers and events.

The site was built from the ground up using the TALL (Laravel) stack and sports a large array of features such as blogging, albums, subscriptions, events, instant messaging, customizable profiles, feeds, groups and advanced group management, and so on.

Furthermore I have gotten experience with a lot of real concepts such as advanced dockerization, deployment, load balancing, caching, server maintenance and more.

Warning: Puppy Pride is an adult themed social network for people into petplay based in England. Explicit imagery may be present. Due to the site's content, logging in is required to view the majority of its features.

Furality is a nonprofit organisation that organises Furality Online Experience (F.O.X.), the largest online furry convention in the world hosted inside VRChat.

Since December 2023 I volunteer for Furality Inc. as a Backend Developer. I work together with the rest of the DevOps Department to work on APIs and systems that use things such as TypeScript, NestJS, Grafana, Prometheus, RabbitMQ, Authentik, C#, Unity, and more.

I am mainly tasked with developing Furality's in-house OIDC system, and expanding Furality's Unity plugins. But I also work on upgrading and scaling queue runners, updating existing APIs that connect with Discord, Patreon, VRChat and others to run the convention itself, and maintaining databases and infrastructure surrounding the systems.

esu Easter System Universe

For the past years I've worked on building and writing a universe of mysteries called ESU. It is now mature enough to release, with several dimensions and planets on which the natives speak their own unique languages.

The universe confronts you with anomalies and alien concepts familiar enough to relate with as they fight for survival in an ever more technological world. Worlds collide as it becomes ever more apparent that the puppeteers of the world might not be who you think they are, instigating a battle in which you must rely on hope to make it through.

The first written story titled "Luther's Throne" is planned to release soon and will be published on this website.
