I'm Pascal Poredda. I live in Cologne, but travel all around Europe in my van.

I am a Freelance Software Developer, kickstarted my journey in 2016.

Former PHP enthusiast, I delved into the world of NodeJS + TypeScript land and eventually found my heart in the Rust land (for now). My passion lies in continuous learning, crafting software that works reliably and moving fast (I also type fast).

Software I use, gadgets I love, and other things I recommend.

I get asked a lot about the things I use to build software, stay productive, or buy to fool myself into thinking I’m being productive when I’m really just procrastinating.
Here’s a short list of all of my favorite stuff.

  • IDE: NeoVim in Alacritty
  • Font: IBM Blex Mono Nerd Font
  • Keyboard: ZSA Moonlander with black switches
  • Workhorse: Macbook Pro 16', 32GB Ram, M2 Max
  • Tech-Stack backend: Rust, Axum, SQLX, Postgres
  • Tech-Stack frontend: NextJS, React or simple HTML + HTMX
  • Hosting: Vercel, DigitalOcean
