Hi, my name's Nik and I am a professional software developer, managing desktop and web projects and a team of front-end and back-end developers. Please note that everything on this website is my opinion, and not of my employer. After-hours I develop under a one-man software label Sheerwater, making apps for mobile and tablet, primarily on the latest Windows platforms. While I'm a developer at heart, I like to think that I have a designer's eye as well; no matter how many features an app has, it's not worth it without a great user interface. On the software side, I love to push the envelope and find new and exciting ways of doing things most people would say are impossible. This website is my mental outlet. I share tips and tricks I discover while developing, as well as anything else I think of and can't fit into a Twitter post.
