Years of Barcodes

My last 15 months had a common theme: barcodes. At this point all my research, coding and writing is finally allowed to move into the public sphere, plainly visible for all who care. And incredibly interesting for those who don’t just yet.

Proudly prod.ly

Disclaimer: I am the ProductLayer Developer Evangelist. My job is to convince you to build apps using our platform. Contact me if you have any questions.

Have you ever tweeted about a product that has you excited? Have you ever posted about a product on Facebook that really annoys you? Are you a “digital native” who feels right at home in social networks, keeping loose contacts with your friends and business associates?

Until today, whenever you would post something to a social network, this information would drown in the flood of other people’s posts. There was no way of finding other people’s opinions about physical products, except perhaps Amazon product reviews. But wouldn’t you trust more your friend’s opinions than those of complete strangers?

Today ProductLayer announces solutions to the problems above. We proudly present: prod.ly – a social network on which your friends share their opinions on various physical products.

Open Letter to Long Lost Contacts

I extracted all E-Mail addresses from my archive, dating back almost 6 years. From the resulting 7303 I filtered all that didn’t seem to address individual people. That left 5466.

For a while I considered sending an email to all of these via Mailchimp. I even wrote the letter below, in English because I figured that most people would understand that. But then I decided against sending a mass e-mail, fearing that it would cause me more trouble than positive outcomes.

Instead I’m posting it on my blogs. Much less of a nuisance …

For Hire

Over the last 8 months I worked almost exclusively on my book on Barcodes with iOS 7. That meant that during this time I could not take on any new projects. That has changed now, that my book is feature complete. There are some edits remaining to be made, as well as adding info on enhancements coming in iOS 8.

But as I need to earn a living I am now back on the market for taking on project work. I am acting Developer Evangelist for our Product Layer startup and am now looking for contract work to fill the income gap. I’ve summarized my skills and interests for your reference.
