Lauri Elias

Full stack web developer


2021 XMG APEX 17

Weighs 2.5 kg (5.5 pounds). Don't care. Battery lasts 1.5 hours. I'm always plugged in. Has an RTX 3060 inside if I ever want to CUDA or game. Can't complain for EUR 1190.77. Can't complain at all.

Pixel 4a 5G

Makes pretty pictures. Can root it anytime. Has served me days, costing EUR per day.

Logitech Pebble

Who ever thought mice should click?

Forerunner 255

Garmin makes great gadgets. As a 30+ developer you need some way of staying lean & avoiding achy back.


Ubuntu/Windows encrypted dual-boot setup

Latest Ubuntu LTS is the daily driver, if I want to run Diablo 4, Fortinet VPN, or Safari inside VMWare, I boot to Windows.


apt-get install for Windows.


The perfect IDE for me. The GitHub Copilot plugin provides an order of magnitude more value than the $10/mo sticker.


Chrome only for debugging purposes. Remember, you can install uBlock Origin on Firefox for Android.


Replay requests. Save 'em, share 'em. Can do it without installing any apps.


When you need a second AIpinion.



Been in love with it since ~2014. Can build in a week what takes your average Java farm 3 months.


Don't care for PHP bashing. It's a fine tool with many uses.


I don't particularly like Angular or SPA frameworks in general, but I've been the go-to Angular guy on 3-4 projects, since the AngularJS days.



Can write a Dockerfile in my sleep. Make 'em run on OpenShift, Kubernetes, Swarm...what have you. Only we should first make sure we need a microservice architecture at all.


I have experience with Bamboo, Jenkins, GitHub Actions. Love seeing colourful graphs generated off a 90%+ coverage.xml.
