Anything problematic excites me, smooth sailing just sounds boring. This is why I enjoy speeding up processes by finding or creating the right tools for the job.
Writing APIs and web platforms
Using SaltStack and other tools to maintain the cattle
Setting up and maintaining CI for everyone
I have been serving in the Homebrew PLC since 2020, making sure the membership is happy and can do what they want to do.

Ever since one of the homebrew-php maintainers didn't work fast enough for my taste I've been helping out with the project. First as homebrew-php maintainer and later as homebrew-core maintainer. Serving on the Project Leadership Comittee since February 2020.

These are the things I worked on that make me proud. Some of it is personal and some of it is paid, but all of it is exciting.
Helped to write a payment app that connected to GateGroups internal systems to place orders in a record time. Despite the app being discontinued I am still incredibly proud of what we achieved as a team. [https://www.moveagency.com/en/cases/uqonic-chefs](https://www.moveagency.com/en/cases/uqonic-chefs)
Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is one of the top 15 busiest airports in the world, and they are cargo airport number 1. Starting in 2019, the M2mobi team has been working on a complete rework of their mobile application and I've been glad to be part of it. With bi-monthly local meetings that quickly turned into many virtual meetings, we've truly delivered a result that we can be proud of. If you want to interact with some of my work, make sure to check out the announcement, inbox, MyTag and notifications.

Over the past few years I've made numerous contributions to the nextcloud projects RSS reader app. As an avid user I've implemented security fixes and under-the-hood improvements I thought were important for my continued usage. This is in my eyes how open-source should be done, everyone scratching their own itch.
With Android and iOS Burgernet, 2.4 million people keep their eyes open for missing or suspicious persons. Getting only messages that are relevant for them, after taking over the project from another company M2mobi worked hard to get the app up to modern standards for both code and performance. Unfortunately the Facebook Messenger bot I wrote for them got killed by new rules for bots, but the performance of the app is still going strong.

Made an Apiblueprint renderer in PHP based on the drafter tool by apiary. All of the existing tools were missing something so I wrote my own version. This has been used by Move to replace the old docbooks since it's inception with very positive responses from both api consumers and writers.
Since Atlassian self-hosted tools are no longer supported, Move needed to migrate to other systems. We picked Jira Cloud and GitHub as replacements based on knowledge existing within the company. I led the succesful migrations as part of the system administration team. The migrations were low impact for the teams since they were gradual and overall the teams were happy.
