Järva - frisbeegolfaajien Mekka

July 28, 2015 22:41

Järva DiscGolfPark (http://www.discgolfpark.com) on frisbeegolfaajien Mekka, jonne lajin harrastajien on syytä suunnata ainakin kerran elämässään. Tänä vuonna oli minun vuoroni tehdä pyhiinvaellus kyseiseen pyhättöön.

Selecting a sports tracker

January 10, 2015 13:51

There are a lot of sport tracking systems. I have been using HeiaHeia for years but my personal needs are out-growing it. This post deals with my thoughts regarding different sport tracking systems that are available, which ones suit my needs and why.

Disc golf and the year 2014

August 3, 2014 23:50

During this year (2014) I have found myself more and more interested in the game of disc golf.

About me

Hi! I'm Janimatti Ellonen.

I was born (1980) and raised in Stockholm. I did most of my (school) time in Stockholm. I moved to Helsinki, Finland in 2001. Currently I live in Leppävaara, Espoo. In 2004 I started my studies at the Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences and graduated in 2008.


I'm a software developer at Fraktio. My main focus is web software development with PHP and JavaScript although I’m highly interested in Scala (still learning) and if I ever find time and motivation, I’d like to do some iOS development.

Before that I worked at Soprano Digital (formerly know as Brain Alliance) for over 8 years.

I’m a disc golf enthusiast since 2011. In 2014 I was on a disc golf course for more than 100 times. I try to play disc golf around the year, at least once a month on off-season and preferably daily on June-August.

In addition to disc golf I enjoy playing floorball (according to my HeiaHeia stats, I played 52 times in 2014).

I love reading books. I have way too many unread books in my bookshelf and I should really start buying e-books to ease the burden of my poor bookshelf.

Projects

On my spare time, I tend to code a lot, mostly PHP-based projects. I also try to provide my mere development skills to other projects that actually have users. Here are some projects that I have been involved with.

Munkirjat

Munkirjat (my books - in english) is a pet project of mine, which I use to register books I have bought, basic information about each book (title, authors, type), whether I have read them or not and so on. Partially for allowing me to learn new stuff and also for helping me figure out whether I already own a specific book. I buy quite a lot of books and at times I forget whether I already own the book or not. :)
