Øyvind Skaar

Hi, I'm Øyvind. I'm a freelance developer and IT consultant based in Oslo, Norway. I'm an independent consultant, developer and architect, working with Google Cloud technologies and Go (golang).

After studying computer science and working for a few years, I left my job in 2014 to start my own company and work as a freelancer and independent consultant. I've done quite a few things since then. Primarily, I've worked with startups and other innovative companies that use newer technologies and have a knack for creative, pragmatic solutions.

I'm currently working with one startup and one larger enterprise to build solutions using the Google Cloud Platform and Go (golang). I also make and support a web-app for Intolife (homepage, project description) through my company.

Working primarily with startups means that I've previously used whatever these companies typically use. This places an emphasis on open source software and cloud deployments. My specialty is back-end, server-side technology and architecture.
Now it's all Go (golang) and Google Cloud Platform but previous technologies include: Docker, several cloud providers and languages such as Python (w/ Django), Perl 5 (w/ Mojolicious), PHP and Ruby (w/ Rails), as well as databases etc. See my CV for more.

This site is devoted to Go, Google Cloud and a few other technical topics.
