I've been hacking away at computers and software for more than 15 years in various languages (yes even Fortran and x86 assembler) and different platforms.
I'm a Technical Pathfinder at Coolblue in the Netherlands where I help teams with technical challenges, look for new and interesting tech we can use and help shape the future of software development.
I love to share knowledge and give talks on subjects ranging from Test Driven Development and Continuous Integration / Delivery to resilience in distributed systems and NoSQL / polyglot persistence (and sometimes even about people!). Organising a conference or interested in what I can share with you? Get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org!
Most of my free time however goes to volunteering for the Kinder Vakantie Spelen foundation in my hometown of Spijkenisse.
