Hello and welcome to my new blog arvydas.co.uk!
Let me quickly introduce myself. I am Arvydas – a software developer and electronics hobbyist based in Hertfordshire, UK. I was born in Lithuania and just a few years ago moved to work in UK. I have been into software development for more than 15 years and have significant experience in PHP, Ruby on Rails, C# (Mono/Microsoft.NET) and Delphi. I am a huge fan of Open Source initiative and love Linux even though my primary desktop is Windows due to the majority of my day-to-day work involved in the latter OS. Quite recently I got a chance to work with Arduino open source hardware and was very impressed by the openness and easy of use of the platform.
I am not new to blogging and have been writing arvydas.net in Lithuanian, but decided to finally spread my thoughts to a wider audience in English. :) So what can you expect to find here? Just on top of my head in no particular order the topics might be:
- Software development in general;
- Arduino and other electronics projects;
- Development with Ruby on Rails and C# languages;
- Life in UK;
- Whatever interesting is on my mind at the moment.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you will find something useful here. :)
