Hey, I’m Mathias Lafeldt, an indie product engineer from Germany who loves building delightful tools for developers. 🛠

I always wanted to have a place of my own to write about serverless. With this site, I’m doubling down on an exciting opportunity based on my firm belief that the future belongs to serverless architectures and developers who can write useful software without touching a single server – more managed services, less undifferentiated heavy lifting.

Right now, I’m really into:

  • JavaScript runtimes, with a focus on embedding Deno into Rust applications
  • Next-generation web frameworks like Remix and Astro
  • WebAssembly at the edge and in the browser
  • All things GraphQL

Regardless of the chosen tech stack, my ultimate goal is to create successful products that solve real problems in an appealing way. And I want to help other makers achieve the same.

Work with me

I’ve helped companies modernize dozens of legacy applications and worked on multiple SaaS products – most recently as a founding engineer – including a website builder, a chaos engineering platform, and a GraphQL-at-the-edge provider.

I’m available for new client engagements ranging from one-time support to long-term product development. Contact me if you have a project in mind or think I might be the right fit to augment your team.
