My name is Raivo and I am a former software consultant, a business owner, and an Open Source contributor. I have built software for the last 15 years.
I enjoy to create web applications. My latest projects include a web-based truck load optimizer and an online CAD application. I maintain the Blog-Core blogging framework and a number of Open Source libraries.
My usual developement stack is made of:
- Express web application framework.
- React frontend framework.
- Bootstrap frontend user-interface framework.
- MySQL database.
This stack has stayed relatively unchanged for the last 5 years.
I also love to play around with SWI-Prolog and often try out new libraries and frameworks. I keep in touch with the community by reading a large number of technical blogs and visiting local developer meetups.
I keep my Open Source code on GitHub. You can reach out to me
