Mika Naylor
Mika is a haphazard assemblage of biological processes.

I’m a software developer currently shambling towards death in Berlin, Germany. I am creating my own set of aesthetically unified and ideosyncratic productivity tools, most notably Hrǽw and Færeld. I am also beginning to play around with hardware prototyping, as with my Regn project. Outside of these projects, I am also a contributor to and maintainer of the Black python formatter.

Professionally, I am a developer and sysadmin at Crate.io, a company building a horizontally scalable SQL database and a machine data platform. I spend most of my days creating things and building scalable infrastructures with Kubernetes, Docker and CrateDB. Alongside this, I also work a lot with release/distribution pipelines, tooling and drivers.

Outside of software, I mostly read books, listen to ambient black metal and climb bouldering walls. At the moment, my reading is mostly geared towards history of philosophy, philosophy of mind/language and neorationalism, with a focus on reading Giles Deleuze, Robert Brandom, Reza Negarestani and Ludwig Wittgenstein. I have not worn a colourful piece of clothing in my life.

If you'd like to contact me, you can find me on Twitter, merveilles.town and Github. If email is more your thing, you can drop me one at [email protected].
