Hi. My name is Nikolaus Brunner,
but most people call me Nik.
I am working as a Software Engineer for DealerCenter Digital .
Previously I worked for diva-e .
My tech stack at the moment consists of React , TypeScript , SCSS , StorybookJS and NodeJS .
My main focus is definitely Frontend, but I regularly have touchpoints with the Backend.
In my free time I try to explore other languages like Go , frameworks like Svelte , architectures like Styled Components with EmotionCSS and best practices with some side projects, like my Terra Theme , my Obsidian Deep Work Theme , which has over 40k downloads at the moment, or of course this website .
And to intimately familiarize myself with Linux, I run EndeavourOS , and before that Pop!_OS , as my main operating system on my personal computer.
I also love Vim/Neovim and my Moonlander Split Keyboard .
As far as software development is concerned, I try to put a lot of emphasis on good architecture and elegant, yet readable code. I don't want to stick a band-aid on a problem, but try to understand and heal the wound.
In my years before, I also worked as a Photographer, Audio & Video Engineer in Studios and Hotels, but also as a Landscaper and I also washed many dishes.
While this probably sounds confusing, since 2020 I now work as a Software Engineer, and I am very happy with my path, and I also think my previous experiences make me a better developer.
