Nils Stolpe

Nils has over 12 years of experience as a full stack software engineer.  Before coming to NearForm, Nils most recently worked as part of the Flipboard web app team where he implemented designs, tackled tech debt, and built out features to enable user content generation and social networking functionality. He has also been spending a lot of time writing shaders for OpenGL/WebGL and building a JavaScript game engine using React and PixiJS.  While Nils has focused mostly on JavaScript for server and client-side code, he has worked with a number of languages and frameworks and is always interested in learning more. He has ambitions to learn more about Rust, Elixir, and Haskell, but has so far only made a little progress in the first. Some of his most rewarding professional experiences have involved mentoring or being mentored, and he’s always happy to teach or learn from someone else. Nils’s hobbies include reading, writing, 3D modelling, creating pixel art, playing guitar, and digital audio production, though he struggles to find time for them all.
