The professional

I’m employed as lead developer / architect of the web team of NU.nl (Part of DPG Media), the largest news site in the Netherlands. I do DevOps, Kubernetes, AWS Cloud engineering, Python, Javascript and quite some other buzzwords.

I studied Industrial Design Engineering so I’m comfortable with talking about UI and UX and care about pixels also.

In my opinion one of the hardest challenges in IT, besides obviously naming things and cache invalidation, is coming up with solutions that balance simplicity, flexibility and ruggedness.

The guy

I run (quite a lot) and play tennis (occasionally). I love to hangout with my girlfriend and kids. I’m a cat person (not neccessarily hating dogs). Furthermore I like the caffeinating effect of loud music, when coding or otherwise (As a tribute, the color scheme of this site is based on the cover of one of my favorite albums).
