This is the website of Florian Anderiasch, a Software Developer from Munich, Germany. Hi!
About the author
I'm going to spare you the details, but most of my time is spent building web applications or other software, poking servers, fixing open source software, playing games, or ranting. I rant a lot.
I like programming languages, as can be seen in this post, where I use 20 different ones to solve the Advent of Code 2020.
I'm writing a mix of Java, C++, and Erlang in my day job.
In 2018 I wrote:
I'm not a fan of Go anymore (except for small monitoring checks) and I've been doing C++ since December and I'm actually enjoying it. Not as good as Rust, but a fun new thing for me.
In 2016 I wrote:
Now it's 2016 and this paragraph needs to be shorter again, so here it goes: less Lua :(, same amount of Python, a lot of Java, no PHP at all, learned some Rust, revisited OCaml after 10 years (it rocks now) and still haven't had a chance to use a lot of Go. JS/node can still go die in a fire.

About this website
This awe-inspiring website was originally made with Hyde(code) and Vim. Both choices were to a small degree inspired by posts by Steve Losh, although I've had read about Hyde before and had used Vim for ages. But in both cases his excellent articles tipped the point.
In August of 2013 I threw out Blueprint and replaced the CSS with a
responsive layout done in Foundation.
on this website is Piwik, although I hardly look at the visits. How useful!
No more tracking as of May 2018.
Technically speaking, most static site generators transform Markdown to HTML and in my case a Makefile does all the plumbing. Not fancy at all.
In January of 2015 I switched over to hugo because of the faster page generation, the better docs and there being an actual community. I still use Vim exclusively for updating though.
In October of 2021 I started redoing the CSS.
For blogs I've used Wordpress, Serendipity, and booq, which was my guestbook-turned-blogsoftware that's been live in version 2.0 as early as 2002. I can only guess 1.0 was some horrible mess. My guess is that I've looked into 3/4 of all at least semi-popular weblog engines written in PHP, Python, Ruby and Perl, yet never used them in production.
As of now I think the GDPR was mostly a good idea and thus I decided to kill off any tracking on this Website. No more Piwik/Matomo, no cookies, no external embeds, and webserver logs are deleted after a day.
