Swedish software engineering student with a passion for writing. On this blog you'll be able to follow my life and learn more about programming and academic studies. A lot is happening in my life at the moment and next year I'll go to Finland on a year abroad, there I'll study the Nordic Master in Intelligent Systems (NISS-) programme. You'll be able to follow this journey on this blog as well.

Now living in Finland!

Okay so maybe I’ve been living here for one week already, but it has been so much going on so that I’ve not really had the time to sit down and write about the days until now. My first week here has summarily consisted of traveling here, going to a lot of daytime activities where different parts of the university have been explored and seminars been held. On the evenings there has been a lot of activities, either ice-breaker where I’ve met a lot of interesting people or games or pub rounds or parties. So far I’m having a really…

24

Today I’m turning 24 years old. Happy birthday to me! I think that for each year time seems to have been going faster. It seems like just a short while ago that I turned 23, but that’s only until I start to think about all the things that have happened during the year.

I got a house in Finland!

This week I got some really good news. I applied for housing and only a few days later I got an offer for a small apartment with a shared kitchen. To be honest there could not really be a better kind of living to be had for me. It will allow me to come in…

The key to great adventure sometimes simply is to let them happen

Introduction This is the second part of the story started in Disturbance in the night. Yet again it originates from an excellent challenge from Saras blog, namely the key challenge. In this blog post a key is presented which she found when she was very young. It is also this key which is the subject of the challenge; where does the key lead and what mysteries will it uncover? This is my contribution set in the world created for Disturbance in the night. As soon as I have time I’ll also include a video recording! The story is also based on…

Programming in C – Selection

Introduction This is the third part of a 12 part series of blog posts about programming in the C language. This tutorial will guide you through learning C programming, but since there are already a lot of different tutorials out there on the web to learn the basics of programming I’ll not give you yet another tutorial on the exact same thing. These tutorials will instead give you a small description of the different pieces making up the C language. It will give you some links to learn the absolute basics and then continue with a discussion. My hope is…

Sometimes even games for mobile phones can be good, especially if it’s a Harry Potter game!

So I’ve just found a great game to play on the go. The (still kind of new I guess) Harry Potters wizarding world game! Just like most other games for the phone you’ll have to wait and click a lot, and if you’re impatient you can buy progress. But even if you don’t do that I think that so far this is a great game to play even without paying anything. As long as you play with moderation and allow it to take some time you’ll be fine. So what is the gameplay all about? In the game you create…

New theme for the blog, I hope you’ll like it!

As you might see the blog has gotten a new theme. I thought that this was a needed change since the last style didn’t allow me to use pictures in the post without it looking really weird. So now you can expect more images and visual traits to future blog posts! I hope this will…

Will there be Mac-Apps on the iPad this summer?

I feel so excited about this year’s Apple Keynote! Why might you ask? There are many reasons, which makes it all the more difficult to wait. There are rumors about a new Mac Mini, a Mac Pro (the real desktop version), new CPUs in MacBook lines and rumors about an updated iPad Pro! There’s also…
