I believe that it's more important to solve the business challenge than proving you can write the most intricate and complicated code. With that in mind, I try to find the right tool to solve the problem by first understanding the issues, planning a solution and only then picking which technologies to use. You can also visit my website or https://www.polywork.com/ewaldhorn for some insights into what I'm busy with.

Apart from telling rather lame jokes, I also build bespoke software solutions for unconventional people in unorthodox ways. Meaning I'd happily use Go to cache results of a Python function while importing data into a PostgreSQL database using Rust. My main aim is to keep the spice flowing, irrespective of the challenges.

I love using things like Lambdas to build serverless solutions on AWS, especially in Go. Performant, reliable, testable and easily scalable are just some of the things I aim for. It helps to have a strongly typed language that compiles to a fast binary when it comes to keeping an eye on total cost of ownership.

If that resonates with you and you are a bit of a maverick, we should have chat. If it does not, well, then we shouldn't. Obviously! 😂
