Who is CodeApe?
This is a small blog about a programmer. Let me introduce my self, my name is Oscar Norlander and I was born 1977. I live together with my girlfriend Josefine and my daughter Livia in a condo 10 minutes outside Stockholm in Sweden. My biggest interest (after Josefine and Livia) is programming. When I do not spend my time with the family or with some programming project I train my body or cook food.
I got my first computer when I was 7 years old. It was a Commodore 64. I played some games but after awhile i found the built in BASIC language. It was fun and I immediately wanted to learn more. However, at the age of 11 I got my first PC and a C compiler and it did not take long until I decided that I wanted to be a programmer.
I did some detours in my career path working at a petroleum company, doing military service, working as system a tester etc. In 1998 I started to study Computer and System science at Stockholm University. The years at Stockholm University was awesome and I learned a lot about creating awesome software. During this time I also started a company with my friends called BlueFront AB (I moved on from that company though).
Since my University time I have used many programming languages both professionally and for fun. I have for example used C, C++, Java, Perl and Python to name some of them. I have tried everything from kernel programming to create applications that use shiny GUIs.
