About Me

❤️ It's great to see you here! I'm currently available on evenings and weekends for consulting and freelance work. Let's chat about how I can help you achieve your goals.

My name is Olaf Alders. I develop software by day and (occasionally) by night.   My open source projects include, as well as various Perl modules.  I have an M.A. in Classical Philology from McMaster University and an M.A. in Medieval Studies from the University of Toronto.  Sometimes I also write and play music.

In my free time, I ignore the Internet and spend time with my kids.

I’m looking to pick up a few hours of work here and there. If you’d like to hire me, I’ve listed some of my current skills and offerings at

I’m available for mentoring as well as pair programming and one to one help with things like Git, Docker, Perl, CI, GitHub Actions and many other things. Please see my GitHub sponsor Profile for more information.

You can find me on GitHub, Mastodon, LinkedIn or by emailing me.
