Henri Karhatsu - Who am I?

My passion is to build the right software right. I hate working with things that do not matter. I hate building bad software. But I love building great software that brings real value.

I have seen how agile and lean methods like Kanban and Scrum can work. However, I believe that even more important for organizations is to apply an agile mindset. I really like the terms such as value, flow, feedback, and self-organization.

I am a self-employed IT professional currently working as a Ruby on Rails and Javascript developer for AppGyver. If you think you share my passion, let's have a chat.

Scrum Master

I've been working as a Scrum Master in many Finnish companies like Nokia (2011), Posti (2011-2013), and Sanoma (2013-). You can read my thoughts about agile software development from my blog.

Ruby on Rails developer

I have been doing Ruby on Rails development since 2009, for example in co-operation with Iwa Labs (2010) and Kisko Labs (2014).

Besides that I have used Rails for building www.hirviurheilu.com score service for two Finnish sports (2010-). You can find the source code of the application from Github.

Javascript frontend developer

Modern web applications require modern tools. See for example Oma Sanoma that I have been recently building with my team using tools like React and Fluxible.

You may also want to check my presentation about React and Fluxible.

Java developer

I've been working with Java for my entire career as software developer, about 15 years. Here are some applications that I have been building with Java: Postin Muistajan osoitekirja, Netposti, Itella Verkosto and HS.fi sales site.
