What to put on my business card?

I've got a project: I'm making a business card that has wifi. It'll have a cut out through which you see some of the hardware (including a led), a micro-usb port to provide it power and instructions on the back.

Now, the front should contain my name, contact details and a job title. I just don't know yet what that job title should be.

This is the frame within which I'm working:

  • I'm a software developer who likes to work full-stack. I'm comfortable in a large number of languages and also do some hardware (microcontrollers) in projects like this one.
  • I want to stay away from qualifiers like "Junior", "Medior" and "Senior"
  • I'd say I'm a programmer as well as a developer, but I'd prefer to use the latter because it sounds more professional and less hobbyist to me
  • I want something that's a bit more imaginative, though
  • the best thing I've come up with so far is "Software Developer & Tinkerer Extraordinaire" (probably spread over two lines). I don't like the "extraordinaire" and I'm not entirely convinced of "tinkerer". I like the "software developer" and the combination of something serious and something tongue in cheek, but I'm not dead-set on either.

Ideas? Opinions?

An Animated Guide to Node.js Event Loop

Node.js doesn’t stop from running other operations because of Libuv, a C++ library responsible for the event loop and asynchronously handling tasks such as network requests, DNS resolution, file system operations, data encryption, etc.

What happens under the hood when Node.js works on tasks such as database queries? We will explore it by following this piece of code step by step.
