Welcome to my corner of the web.
I’m Mikael Hansson, techie, husband and father of the coolest little guy to ever have spare chromosomes, living on the Swedish West Coast near the Norwegian border.
I usually am in the middle of one or more projects, or reading up on something which will result in one. I often do things in Unixy operating systems, and I sometimes scratch my itch for retro computing by pulling out my old Commodore 64.
Outside of my technical interests, I’ve qualified as a member of the Iron Butt Association, by riding a Buell XB12X motorcycle more than 1600 km around the southern part of Sweden in less than 24 hours.
As an amateur musician I occasionally enjoy dabbling in playing the piano and the guitar. My home studio consists of a MacBook Pro running Logic Pro for its DAW, a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 for its sound interface, and a cheap USB MIDI interface to connect to my stage piano.
At work they no longer know what stamp to put on my forehead, so I’m known as an infrastructure architect. In practice that means I get to design and implement cool technical solutions to assist my developer colleagues in delivering increasingly better service to our customers in a faster, more secure, and more robust manner.
