About me

Hi, I'm Christian. I'm a software engineer. I live in Ã…rhus, Denmark.


I'm currently working full time for my own self-funded startup, tundra. My goal with tundra is to build a better replacement for the command-line/terminal tools we use today. We can do so much better. Read more about that on the chorus page.


I'm social in a few different places: tumblrtwittergoogle+facebook.  I'm usually only active one place at a time, currently that's tumblr but I repost to twitter and facebook. My personal email is the same as the address of this page except that the first dot is replaced with a @.


Before tundra I worked a few different places, most recently google. You can see my CV on linkedin.

My main area of interest is programming tools, primarily programming languages. I've worked professionally on a number of languages including SmallTalk, Esmertec's ill-fated Neptune language (led the design), Java (part of the group that designed and implemented wildcards), and most recently JavaScript (implementing it as part of the V8 team, participating in language design discussions, working on cross-browser conformance testing).

I have a ton of personal projects which live on github.

I like to write about technical stuff and have a technical blog and tumblr, both called Hummus and Magnets for obscure reasons. I've written about mathematics, programming, Babbage, software development, javascript, language design, java, c++, v8, etc. etc.

By the way did I mention I'm working on a new terminal? You can read more about that right here.
