I’m a middle aged software developer. I’ve worked on variety of different projects during my career including:

  • Satellite simulator written in Ada
  • Stock market quantitative analysis software in Java
  • Music sight reading app in Objective-C
  • Social media management platform in Ruby on Rails
  • Telemedicine platform with a Go backend and React frontend

Do people actually call you Beardo?

Yes, pretty much everybody. Some people I’ve know for 10 years would be hard pressed to remember my real name.

How did you get the nickname?

It’s not a very interesting story. About fifteen years ago I was the only one in my friend group that had a beard. On one camping trip my friend called me Beardo and it has stuck ever since.
