About me

I am a software developer and technology trainer. I live in the beautiful triangle between the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.

I started writing software at the age of about 14 or 15. QBasic was my first programming language and I quickly switched to a “real” programming language: I learned C. At that time, the internet started to arrive in the mainstream and immediately caught my interest and attention. I spent a lot of time learning as much as I could about the technologies that made the internet possible. Interestingly, they are still the same today. Yet the world has become more complex. The internet is now in our pocket and no longer hides behind shrill sounds and a huge tube monitor in the far corner of the flat. Software rules much of our lives, everyone and their dog automates all sorts of processes, even governments do it.

I am happy to have found a place in this incredibly diverse, exciting and challenging world of technology. For almost two decades, I’ve been helping people turn their ideas into software and I’ve been helping other developers write better code.

Will you join me on my journey?
