Niko Para

I am a programmer, musician, and occasional writer.

I am currently working at Digital H, developing applications and user interfaces for a wide range of clients.

I was one of the first technical employees at Syrian Archive, where I developed tools and workflows to help teams verify and archive visual evidence of human rights abuses, and had a large part in designing the systems and data architecture they still use today.

Through my experience in this work I was also able to co-author a chapter to the book Digital Witness, published by the Oxford University Press.

I have also worked with a variety of startups - helping them come up with technical solutions to their needs and developing user focused applications.

As a programmer, I have a strong interest in functional programming and software architecture. At the moment I am enjoying lisps (clojure, elisp) and typescript, as well as adventures in emacs.

I try to do some Technical Writing, and publish my collections of public notes

Find me on github, and twitter, or send me an email,

If you want, you can use my gpg public key.
