About me

My full name is Per Magnus Therning, though I’ve always been called Magnus. I’m more and more starting to think that this is a cruel joke by my parents since using the middle name isn’t the most common of practices in many countries. They’ve done the same for my brother and sister as well!

I was born and raised in Sweden (near Gothenburg). After about a decade of living abroad I’ve now moved back to Sweden and since the summer of 2011 I reside in Gothenburg. In total I’ve lived in 5 different countries (though two of them was as an exchange student, so I’m not sure they really count).

In Sweden I hold the degree of “Civilingenj├Âr i datateknik”, but outside of Sweden it’s usually just called a masters. I keep a bit more info on my LinkedIn page. I try to keep that profile up-to-date, but I fear it’s almost always out-of-date anyway.

Contact info

I used to have my full address and telephone number on here, but decided to remove them. Feel free to send me an email if you want to contact me.


Occasionally I post stuff on Twitter, my handle there is magthe.

Feeling generous?

If you are in a generous mood I have an Amazon wishlist. Quite likely that list says more about me than anything I could ever write on this page :-)
