Joel Yliluoma is an author who publishes videos in YouTube under the name “Bisqwit”, ranging diverse topics from programming to gaming and from cats to religion. He has been programming since 1992, and for most years since then, it has been his primary, sometimes only hobby. Though most of his professional life has been spent developing business web applications, he prefers working with low level code targeting older systems; this is evident from his videos as well. In 2014―2015 he was also a coach driver working for Savonlinja in Finland. He is also known for founding, a website and community centered around making “tool-assisted” speedruns of classic video games.

He also maintains the Finnish translation for the Liberapay service.

Making YouTube videos requires money. Money is used for things like recording equipment, gadgets, computers, hard drives, and of course for boring things like “paying the rent”. By supporting me you allow me to spend more time in creating new videos and in better quality. Thank you in advance!
