Swedish Independent Software Engineer and IT Consultant.
Ziran is a Taoist concept that could be translated roughly as the natural state, the way things are, or effortless creativity.
I believe strongly in creativity as an essential driving force not only in my own work, but in all forms of software development. My goal is to let the projects that I work on guide the tools, languages and technologies I use. I deeply enjoy variety, experimentation, change and surprise. Software development should be fun. In fact, I think that having fun is essential to be able to grow and improve at any craft.
A lot of the code I write ends up on Github, and I sometimes write blog posts at 6510.nu. I am also one of the hosts of kodsnack, a Swedish-language podcast about programming which has been putting out episodes since 2012.
I also make music, which I mainly release under the name Oferlund.
