Blog of RLa. Full-stack freelancer.


My name is Raivo and I am a full-time freelance developer in Estonia. I have more than 10 years of experience in software development and I hold a masters degree in computer science.

I am interested in creating user-friendly web applications. My favorite development platforms are io.js (Node.js) and SWI-Prolog on the server side and KnockoutJS and Bootstrap on the browser side.

My Open Source report card.

I am also a maintainer of the Blog-Core blogging framework.

I can also be contacted on Freenode IRC. Usually I am in channels #javascript, #prolog and #node.js with nick RLa.
