    Another way of doing cookieless cookies.

  2. Privacy and Logging

    Mån 17 Juni 2013

    Privacy seem to be a popular discussion these days. While I do think it's a very very important topic to discuss, I sometimes feel there's not enough people who stand up and argue for cases when there's a reason to store data.

    Let me give you an ...

  3. Line styles in matplotlib

    Tis 28 Maj 2013

    I'm a big fan of matplotlib and tend to use it every time I'd like to plot something. A while ago I had a line plot with many lines and ran out of default colors. When that happens, matplotlib will reuse the previously used colors.

    I used Python ...

  4. CQRS+Event Sourcing Messaging Patterns

    Sön 26 Maj 2013

    Designing a decoupled, message based, system based on the CQRS pattern together with event sourcing require some thought. Since I've been thinking about it for a while now, I thought I'd share some thoughts so far.

  6. Refreshable AngularjS service

    Tor 23 Maj 2013

    Lately I've been working a lot in AngularJS. This is my second project with the framework, and the more time I spend in it, the more I like it.

  7. Migrating to Python 3

    Sön 19 Maj 2013

    I initially started the implementation of Rewind in Python 2.7. I constantly kept test coverage to 100%, and I tried to stick to TDD as much as possible. The Python testing tool Nose proved to be very ...

  8. Bootstrapping software projects

    Sön 19 Maj 2013

    This post is partially related to my previous blog post about Rewind and GoRewind.

    Even though I've been working as a full-time developer for the past 4-5 years, it still hits me how much boiler plate is required to create a proper software project. In fact, I've seen ...

  9. CQRS - Time to Rewind

    Sön 19 Maj 2013

    For the last year I've been thinking a lot about CQRS [1], Event Sourcing and distributed architecture using ZeroMQ. I first stumbled across the concept of CQRS through the mailing list for a nerd meetup in Helsingborg, Sweden. This led me to a lot of CQRS reading and videos ...

  10. That initial blogpost

    Tis 14 Maj 2013

    So it's time to kick off this blog. I cheated a little and posted a previously written blog post. It was posted on a personal blog that mostly had Swedish material.

    My intent with this blog will be to "put a URL on my tech and possibly entrepreneurship thoughts ...
