Software Engineer in Ede, Netherlands

Read my blog

I'm a 28-year old software engineer from The Netherlands. My interests lie with (web)development, databases, design patterns, social media, communities, APIs and open data.

Used to know just HTML and CSS, then learned PHP. Later I did some Java, Ruby (On Rails). Then I learned how to use Git (and Github). Fiddled around with APIs. Fell in love with patterns, best practices, performance. Recently been trying to understand servers, pushing buttons on AWS EC2. Still want to do game development and HTML5 mobile apps.

So yeah, I basically like everything involved withweb development, from the bottom to the top of the stack.

(Okay, maybe not so much design.. thank god for Twitter Bootstrap)

Currently focussing on Golang and devops.
