January 18th 2015

My name is Jonas Arnfred and I currently live in Edinburgh where I'm coding away for Amazon. I was born and grew up in Denmark, but I have always loved to explore new parts of the world so between then and now spent a year in Chicago, worked in France, Iceland, and Spain, studied abroad in Chile and graduated with a master in computer science from EPFL in Switzerland in 2013. I wrote my thesis at ADSC in Singapore and stayed on as a software engineer for a year and a half before moving to Edinburgh. If you are a potential employer and want some more information then feel free to check out my CV. If you happen to be in my neighborhood then write me an and let's meet up for a drink.

About this Website

The purpose of the site is to serve as a place where I can jot down notes and host various projects. Its main function is to make it easy for me to gather things in one place while serving as an overview for those that might be interested in what I am doing. You can find a large collection of my photographies from trips around the world on ifany.org. In the notes section you can find things I have written down either for the sake of remembering them later or to share a thought or two. Finally I try to keep an up to date list of the different projects I have made or am currently working on dynkarken.com/projects.

About Dynkarken

The name Dynkarken is taken from a street name in my home town Ã…rhus, Denmark connecting the bus station with the harbour. The etymology of the name Dynkarken is unknown but AarhusWiki has several possible explanations (link to English translation) including that the road should have taken the name from a pirate who used to live in the area and that the name might have been inspired by the French town 'Dunkirk'.

For a long time I've found the name intriguing because it manages to sound both Danish and nonsensical at the same time, a little like hopwobble does in English.
