Andreas Haugstrup Pedersen

My name is Andreas Haugstrup Pedersen. I grew up in Denmark but live in San Francisco, California with my wife, the writer Britta Shoot. I like software development, semiotics and location pinball.

From 2009 to 2015 I was the founding developer of Podio (acquired by Citrix in 2012). My specialty is frontend engineering, developer relations and UX, but I don't mind wrestling databases. I like dynamic programming languages.

Profiles: blog, github, twitter, ifpa
