About Stig Brautaset

I'm an experienced software engineer, currently working remotely from the North East of England as head of infrastructure at LaterPay. I've previously worked in London and Hong Kong. Employers have paid me to write HTML, PHP, Perl, C, JavaScript, Java, Objective-C, Scala, Python, Bash and English.

I'm originally from Hovdebygda, in ├śrsta, on the west coast of Norway. I studied electronics and endured compulsory military service as a sonar operator on a submarine, before moving to London to study AI at the University of Westminster. I graduated in 2003.

About SBJson

I started writing the popular SBJson JSON parser/generator for Objective-C in 2007, and have maintained it ever since. It's now in its 5th major version and have over 3800 stars on GitHub.

About this website

I build this website in Emacs' Org mode, which can publish static HTML files. Those I deploy on Amazon S3 behind a CloudFront distribution and a free SSL certificate.

Code examples are by me, unless otherwise specified, and available under the Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-SA 4.0) lisence.


If you want to contact me about one of my software projects I ask that you do so by filing an issue on GitHub.

Otherwise the best way of contacting me is via email. I used to give my email address here, but in a (most likely futile) attempt to limit spam I've removed it. Don't worry: I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out.
