My name is Ole Laursen. I'm cofounder of IOLA where I work as a software consultant. I have a Master's degree in computer science in distributed systems from Aalborg University in Denmark. More about my professional life at LinkedIn.
I'm generally interesting in things that involve creating something or solving a hard problem.
I have a garden of the size of 1.5 hectares that I'm slowly turning into an orchard. And I've always spent a lot of time reading, although having the good fortune to become the father of four children children has temporarily put a halt on that. Registered some of books on goodreads.com.
Free software I'm maintaining:
My Garden of Python which is a non-collection of small single-file Python modules ready to plug into other Python projects, mostly solving web-related problems.
Free software I'm more or less not maintaining anymore:
The C++ library commandoptions - a command-line parsing library with a simple interface.
The compose library - a C++ header for converting and assembling strings and other objects into a single string conveniently.
Free software I used to maintain before passing the bucket:
Notable other Ole Laursens include a kick boxer and a lawyer.
