ABOUT ME

White Line

Hi, my name is Alex Afshar. I am a software developer specializing in web application development.

My favorite languages are (in order of experience):

  • Java
  • Elixir
  • Ruby
  • Clojure

These are some of the technologies I enjoy using professionally:

  • Phoenix (elixir)
  • Rails (ruby)
  • Spring Boot (java)

Here are some technologies I have recently been using for personal projects/evaluating:

  • Hanami (ruby)
  • Luminus (clojure)

I have a strong interest in distributed systems and concurrency. I try and make use of the aforementioned technologies to solve such problems, if you have a particularly interesting problem I would be happy to chat about it. Please feel free to contact me via the form below.

Outside software development I am interested in Linux and BSD, and jazz guitar.
