My name is Arve Systad, and I'm a consultant/contractor/software developer at Aurum, a small consultancy in the beatiful city of Oslo, Norway. My main focus is somewhere in the Microsoft tech stack, but I see my self as technology agnostic at heart, using whatever tools fit the problem space best.

I mostly delete code, and fancy clear cut architecture, domain driven design and smooth, automated, clutter free processes. Sprinkle in distributed, event driven systems, some harsh questions (sometimes often stupid ones), and I'm in my sweet spot. Not afraid to point out bad practices.

For more, find me over on Twitter as @arvesystad where I talk about all kinds of stuff, both in Norwegian and English. I also exist on GitHub, although there's not always too much to look at on the public profile.

This blog meant to be both a big note-for-self for later, as well as a platform for learning - both for myself and others. If just a few visitors actually learn something new or rethink old patterns based on what I write here, I deem it successful.
