Øyvind Skaar

Hi, I'm Øyvind. I'm a developer and IT consultant based in Oslo, Norway. I run the worlds smallest development & consultant company, as well as participating in a few other projects.

After studying computer science and working for a few years, I left my job last year to work as a freelancer and independent consultant.

I work with startups and other innovative companies where there's little bureaucracy and a knack for creative, pragmatic solutions.

Currently I split my time between making a web-app for Intolife (homepage, project description), freelancing for Sobazaar (a social fashion app) and a few other projects attached to my company.

Working primarily with startups means that I use whatever these companies typically use. This places an emphasis on open source software and cloud deployments. My specialty is back-end, sever-side technology and architecture. I only do the front-end when the project is small enough to not warrant its own fron-end developers.
Technologies include: Docker, several cloud providers and languages such as Go (golang), Python (w/ Django), Perl 5 (w/ Mojolicious), PHP and Ruby (w/ Rails), as well as databases etc. See my CV for more.

This site is devoted to the more technical and personal topics. For anything more business related, see my company website.
