More about me
I'm a reliable and passionate developer with emphasize on creating software that does what the users need it to do.
I'm interested in usability and want to work in an agile way, using the latest methodologies. I can work in a team but am also able to work independently and remotely.
I was born in 1986 in Finland. I started my computer science studies on 2006 and finished on 2012. During 2010 I also started to work as a programmer.
I live in Kuopio with my fiance, dog and two cats. I'm interested in software development, game development (indie mainly), history and running.
Learning new things from different fields of expertise is inspiring.

Software developer: Tasks relating to software development.
CGI (Logica) 2010 - 17.05.2013

Trainee (programming): I worked at the European Forest Institute with the ToSIA project doing programming and unit testing with Java fixing bugs and creating proper error messages to display to the users. I really enjoyed programming a Java SE application and working with the actual end users. The development was also small scale and it was possible to see changes done quickly and get user feedback.

Game Developer: This is a hobby project for me and my friend, but we take it as a serious opportunity to improve our software developing skills. We use Java to make games that we would like to play by ourselves. We have serious issues issues to manage find the time for development but we have already released something playable and improve all the time. Check louhigames.com for more info.
Swan 4/2010 - 5/2011
Software Developer: I worked with Scientific Writing AssistaNt for a year doing programming and user interface design with Java, Swing and Stanford NLP tools. The tool is free to use and you can get it from the Swan home page. I really liked to be able to redesign the whole user interface, but I also learned that it isn't easy when the application has already been designed to work in a different way. Processing natural language is also hard but also interesting.
