My name is Mark Seemann, and ploeh blog is my professional blog (not that I have a personal blog). Here, I write about programming, software development, and architecture.

I'm a self-employed programmer and software architect living in Copenhagen, Denmark. I enjoy reading, playing the guitar, good wine, and gourmet food.


Apart from the hundreds of articles on this blog, I also write and produce material via other professional outlets.

There's lots of ways to contact me, and you are welcome to do so, e.g. if you want to hire me, want me to speak at a conference or user group meeting, or simply if you have a question you think I should answer here on the blog. In case of public speaking, you can also review my public speaking schedule.

One way to contact me is via email. Here's a little test of your sentience: take each segment of the following email address, and reverse it (e.g. oof@rab.zab would become foo@bar.baz): kram@heolp.kd.
