Hi, I’m Aloys, or simply Alo.
As a person
Let’s start with the most important bit: the non-work related stuff.
I enjoy and practice outdoor sports quite a bit. Right now, I tend to spend my weekends either kitesurfing or surfing. In the past, I spent a lot of time in the Alps, practicing acrobatic paragliding, skiing or simply tramping up the mountains.
As a developer
I am currently working as front-end developper in Brisbane.
In the past, I mainly worked as a fullstack developper - but my area of expertise remains in the front end. I have worked in production with different technologies and frameworks.
For the backend, my tool of choice as a freelancer has been Laravel as it gets the job done - but these days, I would probably reach out to a JS back-end framework to limit context switching.
I also had the chance to dabble in Rust when working in San Francisco.
This year, I am experimenting with the 12 Weeks Year. Without going into details, the idea is to approach your year in four chunks, in a sort-of agile way.
The goals for my next 12 weeks are:
- Getting this website off the ground (I have meant to do so for two years now!),
- Loose 6 kgs
I have few projects going on at the minute, one of thenm being the website you’re currently on. For the past few years, I meant to open a digital-garden-like website, and here it is.
This site is powered by Astro, and it’s where I spend most of my outside of work
Feel free to poke around my website and stay as long as you wish. I publish my thoughts, learnings and mistakes.
If you find anything that spark you attention, feel free to reach out. I am always keen to connect with people.
