Welcome! This is the first post on this blog so I guess an introduction is in order. My name is Elias Brange, and I am currently working as a Cloud Developer in Lund, Sweden.

On this blog I will share stuff that I find interesting. This can be anything from software development in general, my personal journey going from Python to Go, DevOps, Game Development, etc.

Work

I am currently employed by Axis Communications. My daily work revolves around Go development for the cloud, which in practice means developing backend services that leverages AWS services such as Fargate, RDS and API Gateway. My last job was very Python heavy and switching to Go should be an interesting journey. I’m currently going through The Go Programming Language in which I intend to finish all exercises and post them on GitHub.

Game development

I do a fair bit of development outside of work too, namely game development under the name Brulu Games. I currently have seven games released on the Play Store and I have a few ideas lying around for more. Just need to find the time and motivation to sit down and do it. Make sure to check out the games if you are interested in small, casual games. Out of the seven I’d recommend Hazards, which is the game I have spent the most time on and judging by the download count it is by far the most popular.

Books

I’m an avid reader when it comes to non-fiction books. The majority of books I read are about different aspects of the software industry, with books like Continuous Delivery, The DevOps Handbook and Accelerate. I also try to read a few books on soft skills and other personal development. Most of my books comes from the book bundles over at Humble Bundle which pretty much dictates my reading list :-). I’m trying to keep an up-to-date list of books I’ve read (and intend to read) on Goodreads.
