Software Craftsman

Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m a professional software developer since Y2K. A blogger since Y2K+5. Thinking and learning about all kinds of stuff since forever. Past organizer of the European Virtual ALT.NET meetings. Active member of the ElegantCode blogging community.

Developing software is one of my great passions in life. My goal as a software craftsman is to provide simple solutions to complex problems. In order to accomplish this, I'm continuously deepening my existing skills and expertise while learning new skills and broadening my horizons.

Sharing my knowledge and experiences with other people is another one of my lifetime goals. I've been part of several software teams taking up the role as a coach. Organizing community meetings and participating on podcasts are just a few examples of my past community efforts.

I’m currently working at iChoosr as a senior software engineer during the day. At night, I'm hacking on all kinds of fun projects using Node.js, Ruby, F#, Clojure and Erlang.

Besides developing software, I greatly enjoy running long distances, reading inspiring books and listening to great music.
