THE NERDUM MIND

DEVELOPMENT

Honed by years of experience as a backend-developer at Sumocoders(1) and as Lead developer and Co-founder of Lunar Gravity(2), The Nerdum Freelancicus writes code like it’s his native language.

Specific areas of expertise: PHP, Javascript, Laravel, Processing, Node.js some symfony-, and wordpress excperience. Yet this all pales in comparison to the Nerdum’s willingness to learn and its eagerness to figure things out.

PRACTICAL PROTOTYPING

Driven by a primordial urge to "Make things work", The Nerdum Freelancicus has been known to dive head-first into Projects that require new skills to be learned, new knowledge to be discovered and hacking to be slashed. Wether it be Arduino, figuring out how MIDI works or building a lamp from scratch, the Nerdum shies away from no challenge.

 

FRONT-END DEVELOPMENT

Ever the most humble of creatures. The Nerd is aware that his front-end skills are outmatched by other species (mainly the Extpertus Ante-Finem and the West-pangean Cee-esessorium). However: this does not stop it from doing its very best. This has the added evolotionary advantage of knowing “the lingo”. This proves magnificently useful in a group-based society where other species don’t always see eye to eye.

 

POP CULTURE REFERENCES

Much like the human appendix or male nipples this is simply an evolutionary dead-end. Nobody really knows why the nerdum is so obsessed with popular culture, science or just general useless knowledge.

RECENT FINDINGS

Perhaps one of the most curious things about nerdum freelancicus is that it produces a substance known as "blog posts" from time to time.

What the exact nature or puprose of these are is unknown to modern science, but the current theory seems to be that they are a byproduct of spending a lot of time on the internet and thinking "I should probably have a blog".

SPOTTING THE NERDUM

 

TWITTER

The nerdum has sometimes been seen on the fields of Twitter(3). In the opnion of this researcher there is little of interest to be found there, yet a lot of activity seems to take place there regardless.

For Example: In de categorie Dingen waar ik nog nooit had bij stilgestaan, maar dat nu wel direct moest opzoeken: De "kant" in Kant-en-klaar betekent ook gewoon "klaar"Feb 3 2019 Was that so lifechangingly important that it had to be shared to the world? I didn't think so either.

 

 

ELECTRONIC MAIL

More often than not the nerdum can be easily spotted by means of electronic mail. More specifally at sam@shenanigans.be.
