My name is Rickard Närström. I see myself as a computer scientist, but to be honest with you, I never completed my schooling. I currently don’t work in the software industry but try to keep up with the trends and news as best as I can.
When it comes to software development I usually prefer to work in C or sometimes C++. I like to keep my development close to the metal with little assistance from fancy development environments. The general rule is: “Learn how to do it yourself, then see if a tool can simplify or assist you in the process”. I would never trust a tool if I didn’t know how it work and how to interpret (read and understand) any code it generates.
