Hi there.

I’m a Software Engineer and strive to be a decent person every day. I enjoy working on open source and currently I’m on the Embark team at Status, building tools for developers. Obviously I like writing too, which is why this blog exists.

Most of my spare-time is spent on either practicing advanced hugging also known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, reading books or learning the Rust Programming Language.

In the past I’ve founded thoughtram, a software training company that focuses on high-quality content and fun, and MachineLabs, a developer platform that makes it easy for you to get started with Machine Learning. Sometimes, I speak at conferences too. Here are some of my talks.

You can find me on Twitter, GitHub, StackOverflow… pretty much everywhere as @PascalPrecht. My profiles and public key are verified on keybase.
