My name is Niklas Vincent (né Lindblad) and I love technology in all its forms.
When I was 11 I got a copy of the Borland Delphi IDE and started to play with Objective Pascal. Two years later I compiled my first Linux kernel from scratch in order to get my sound card working using ALSA instead of the (at the time) default OSS.
From there on I have spent thousands of hours playing with various programming languages and operating systems.
Today I work as a Software Engineer.
