I love to make computers take over tasks that are tedious. Often when I repeat the same task several times I start thinking that a computer should be able to do this for me. Quite often I end up spending much more time with the task in the long run (if we count the time used on programming in), but it is much more fun.
I’m not a professional programmer. Rather I’m a hacker in the original sense: I’m the person who hack quick fixes together. I’ve never received systematic training, my knowledge mainly stems from searches on the internet. I never become an expert in certain programming language because I keep on wandering between them.
But I have a lot of fun — and I love sharing my work with others. I think the open source movement within programming is very important, and I thus tend to publish my work under open source licenses (typically GPL or MIT).

Since the middle of the 1980’s I’ve been programming with varying intensity. My first meeting with programming was at the primary school where we learned to make Butler- and Olivetti-computers do some calculations.
Later the school had som Amstrad CPC664-computers (with the 3″ diskstation), where I learned to program a turtle, to make some graphical drawings. We also learned a Danish language called Comal80, besides Basic and a little PolyPascal. I started improving a wordprocessing software called Amsword, and other stuff.
This was the awakening of the computer geek, and after some years I had saved enough money to by a Commodore 128 which was severely investigated — also through programming. I started doing som Basic programming again, but soon found out that this hardware needed som Assembler-programming in order to avoid becomming too slow.
In the mid 1990’s (yes I was a slow mover) I went to the PC-platform (MS-Dos and Windows). In the first run this let to a pause in programming. After some time, however, I found out about Batch-programming and later I also (in order to create my professionally looking interfaces) turned my head towards visual basic scripting (vbs). However VBS also showed to be too limited.
While jumping on the Smartphone-train I also had to learn Android programming.
