Compact biography

My name is Erik Näslund - I’m the co-founder and Head of Engineering at Hotjar.

I've been programming since I learned to type. At the start of my professional career I wandered off into Microsoft-land for a 5-year affair with C#. For the last 10 years I've been using Python for mostly everything back end related.

I'm a big believer in being well-rounded in all aspects of development, while specializing in a few. While I'm a decent front end developer and IT operations person - my big passion is still to architect and build well performing back end solutions.
