I work as a software developer at Maul

We deliver various and delicous lunch to workplaces in Reykjavík.


We at Maul strive to improve the quality of your lunch by offering courses from multiple restaurants and saving you from the constant "what should I have for lunch" conundrum.


We've been spending a significant time and effort to make our internal tools better. We are delivering around 7000 portions of food per week. Our daily operations team was in need of better tools to help them manage the daily operations. This will also help us re-phrasing some issues we've bee dealing with before. Now the operations team can solve some problems that previously they needed the software team help.


I'm working on couple of tasks where we are trying to improve how we handle different active days for companies. This means we are changing our handling from the backend to the front end. This gives us more flexibility and opens up new possibilities for the future.


I finished the TypeScript basics course and I've started on the Everyday TypeScript course on Execute Programming.

I like the execute programming method of courses since they use spaced-repition. I believe that is on of the best way to learn.


I recently started working as a contractor for GigOver


It's an interesting project aimed to help construction workers be more on top of thei projects.


It's built in TypeScript, React, chakra-ui and react-query. I'm working on the frontend part of the project. They do also have an app built in Flutter. I don't have any experience with Flutter, but it would be fun to get experience and learn something new.

I've been slowly building this website, trying to share interesting things with anyone who wants to read it. This article is a great reason to start your blog.


I published a short e-book about how to make LaTeX templates for your homework, aimed towards beginners.It's available here.


I'm thinking about if I should start to re-write my blog to TypeScript. Like I mentioned I want to improve my TypeScript skill, so a real deliberate practice will help greatly. It will depend on what time I have. Since I started working as a contractor I have less extra time. But it would be a good project to work on it over longer time-period. Don't understimate the work done in small chunks but over long time.
