Welcome to Olaf's website

written in asynchronous D

I'm Olafs Vandans, a professional vapourware producer specialising in game engines. I find excitement in functional programming and obscure horror games.

During university I, Rory and Bartek created a fail startup called The Big Tea Party. 2 years later I read the reasons for its failure in Peter Thiel's book Zero to one. Tl;dr: marginal innovation doesn't sell well.

I am currently working as a software engineer at Hostmaker, designing a routing system that sends field staff around London cleaning houses and dropping supplies. I also did an internship at the Amazon development centre in Edinburgh, Scotland, where I ran a machine learning task on the whole web.
