Nik van der Ploeg

I'm a coder and language lover. After college I taught myself some Perl and got a job doing backend work at a company that made trading software. That was great, but I soon decided I wanted to learn more human languages too, so I moved to China and taught myself Chinese.

These days I've got three human languages under my belt and have added a few more programming languages as well. I'm staying in Singapore now and spend my days finishing up my masters in linguistics and coding and writing for my startup Duable Chinese.

I also enjoy doing technical writing, check out some of the work I've done for DigitalOcean here and here.
