I'm Alex Rønne Petersen, a self-taught software engineer currently situated in Thisted, Denmark.
I like to work on open source projects, particularly ones relating to programming languages - compilers, virtual machines, garbage collectors, and so on. I do some occasional reverse engineering and game programming too. I've also ventured into kernel hacking land.
I have experience with a fairly wide variety of programming languages and platforms. I speak most everything from assembly and C to F# and Elixir. I have a strong interest in programming language design, so I invariably end up reading through the entire specifications of the languages I use. As such, I'm comfortable stating that I have an above average understanding of them. I have many years of experience developing software for Windows, Linux, and OS X, on various architectures (e.g. x86, ARM, MIPS, RISC-V).
I have created several open source programs and projects, some of them more complete than others:
And contributed to many others:
I've worked for the following companies and organizations:
Through my day jobs, I've worked on the following commercial products:
