Roy leads the mobile strategy at Xpirit Netherlands. Together with his colleagues, he built Xpirit’s vision on the idea that thinking “mobile first” transforms and accelerates businesses. His approach has always been to make practical sense of new software hypes like Mobile, Microservices, Cloud Native, IoT or Serverless Computing and turn them into innovating, real world software systems. Xamarin, Apple, NServiceBus, .NET and Microsoft Azure are his tools of preference.
A deep commitment to the developer community has earned him the Xamarin MVP and NServiceBus Champ status for sharing knowledge at various conferences and meetups around the world.
As an avid amateur cook, Roy shoots for the (Michelin) stars and he applies the same passion for quality and creativity in his work. He loves drawing and hand lettering with good old pencil and paper and plays the guitar in his spare time.
