About Me

My real name is Raitis Stengrevics, but I always go by daGrevis on the internet. I live in Riga, Latvia and currently work at E-Global Trade & Finance Group on a web-based forex trading platform called Share4you. I’m very passionate about programming and the way things work, and I love to tweet about my experiences and findings!

Most of my time I write code in Python and JavaScript, but lately I have also been experimenting with Clojure and functional programming in general. I like to learn about different approaches in solving problems because there’s always a better way to do something. A few things I have made in my spare time include source code for this and my other blog, link recognition plugin for Markdown, framework agnostic caching library, static site generator, p2p chat for web here and here, and my awesome dotfiles.
