Hi. I'm Einar Egilsson. I...

...am an icelandic software developer.

...moved back to Iceland in 2014, after living for 7 years in Denmark.

...like to build things!

...am active on all kinds of online things, like Github, Twitter, and Facebook.

...have worked at Libra, Deltek and Trustpilot, mostly doing backend development in .NET. Since 2014 I have worked for myself in my own company, Rauðás Hugbúnaður. We run cardgames.io, one of the most popular card game sites in the world.

...wrote a blog post about The Story of CardGames.io and how I started working on card games for a living.

...can be reached through email.

...really like making card games in Javascript. So far I've made:

...recently started creating games that aren't card games, like Mahjong, Chess, Yahtzee, Minesweeper and Sudoku. For Sudoku I also created a sudoku javascript library and wrote a blog post about creating the game and library.

...sometimes create Visual Studio extensions that do things that I want to do:

...like .NET, and sometimes create little utilities, or write down tips and tricks related to .NET development:

...sometimes create browser extensions to make my life easier. Extensions go out of date pretty quickly as extension APIs change, but the ones that are still active are:

...have an Abandoned projects page, which is mostly full of old Firefox extensions. Completely useless now, since the Firefox and Thunderbird APIs have changed so much. I just keep them here because I'm a digital hoarder... :)

...Have created a couple of NPM packages:

...sometimes contribute to open source projects.

...used to use the personal journal site Oh Life, and when it shut down I created my own single-user clone of it, called MyLife.

...have played guitar since I was 11, and recently started playing the Ukulele as well. Sometimes I do some development related to that:

...have written a bunch of blog posts.

...and that's it!
