The web is my passion since 1996, when i developed my first website. I've always liked the idea of people all across the globe communicating with one another.
I have a bachelor and a diploma in Computer Sciences, but everything I know about the web platform and cloud services today is self-taught. I consider myself blessed that I get to build great stuff and help others do the same for a living.
One of the major requirements for staying relevant in the web and cloud ecosystem is to always continue learning. This suits me, because i'm a curious and open-minded person who always like to learn and improve.
I enjoy sharing my knowledge and helping others adopt the technologies I'm passionate about. I have a keen interest in both user experience and developer productivity.
When not dabbling with web and cloud technology, I’m usually playing videogames or reading books or comics. I have slightly elitist views on beer, love to travel the world with my wife and friends and have spent most of my adult life trying to get into a regular exercising habit.
If you'd like me to speak at your event or teach you or your team web and cloud technologies, please pop me an email – I'm always up for a chat! I can also help making the right choices on project start or consult on improving what you already have.
I also tweet as @code_punkt – feel free to contact me there on anything else.
Over the course of the last 15 years, i've worked in a variety of industries and settings, listed in reverse chronological order:
