About Me

My name is Alexander Hardwicke. I’m a software developer, blogger and teacher. I work for Erisma Technologies as a senior developer. I previously worked at Edument AB as a teaching consultant.

My CV is available in both English and Swedish, although I am not currently looking for employment.


I’ve previously taught programming and related skills professionally, and love to share knowledge with the world.

I enjoy a wide range of programming, although nowadays my focus mostly lies on .NET, particularly Xamarin and .NET Core.

I’m also a huge proponent of git, and believe that knowing how to properly use version control can dramatically improve productivity.

My current hobby projects are:

  • Home Assistant, a Python based home automation system I have running on a server at home. My configuration is available here.
  • MaterialRemote (working title), an Android app for remote controlling a TV that implements the JointSpace API. It’s functional for the most part at the moment.

My dead or on-hold hobby projects are:

  • PaintTracker (working title), an app for keeping a list of which Citadel Paints you owns/want. Dead because Games Workshop released their own app that performs the same functions.
  • Surge, a Universal Windows BitTorrent remote, written in a combination of C# and F#. This is on-hold because Microsoft have no F# support for Windows 10. I may one day look into moving it over to Xamarin and adding mobile versions of the client.
