Armin Ronacher's Thoughts and Writings

About Me

My name is Armin Ronacher and I'm a passionate developer interested in web development, graphics, realtime rendering and tons of other stuff. I am one of the founding members of the Pocoo Team and lead developer on a couple of popular Python projects.

I'm currently located in Austria and working as a partner for Sentry and as an advisor for Fireteam Ltd.. I'm available for on-site teaching, presentations and certain types of short term contract work. Aside from that I do open source development and like giving talks at various conferences.

If you want to contact me, you can reach me via one of the following communication channels:

My usual nickname is mitsuhiko.

Like my Work?

All of the open source stuff I work on is BSD licensed which means you can do with it whatever you want.

I'm currently not accepting donations but if you have some truly interesting problems in your company that you think I might be interested in solving, fire me a mail at and maybe we can work together.

About this Website

The name of this website came when a friend of mine and me were joking about what makes a great web 2.0 website. We came up with three things: it has to have round corners, fresh colors and a weirdly shortened name. So the first version of this blog was green, named after a fresh fruit (lucuma) and with a destroyed, abbreviated name. Not much is left from these days, but the name stuck.

The website itself is written in restructured text and built with a small script. Sourcecode can be found on github.
