“Does something with computers” just doesn’t cut it anymore.
There was a time when development was fairly simple. There was code and there was an interpreter. Debugging meant running your code through the interpreter and then find out at which point it had broken.
That has changed. There is now a vast array of frameworks and tools available, made by creative integration developers and smart devops, compiling in realtime by smart task runners and running on any of many available realtime manageable platform services and containers.
Managing all that is combining breakdance and ballet, requiring timing, fine-tuned sensivity and the mindset of a maker.
And It. Is. Awesome!
I prefer creating tailored applications on top of matured frameworks, using external libraries and toolsets where needed, but as little as possible, keeping dependencies at a low. However, compiling all this, I love to incorporate as much automation as possible, making life for the whole team as easy as possible.
I want to work in a team, climb high and learn together in an agile way, embrace continuous delivery and I would love to dive deeper into containers, as-a-service and TDD. My favourite projects include work for education, culture, entertainment and IoT.

Built an arcade cabinet that runs custom made games (phaser) on Raspbian and my kiosk, starring my two 10yo’s :)
For all those waiting to get into a concert, I created a realtime quiz with questions about the performing artist(s). Everyone can participate with their device and every question has a winner profile shown on the big screen.
Finaly, a project where I could go 8-bit! Relatives were sent an invitation to play two challenges and with their scores set awesome aliasses for themselves, which we then printed on a set of cardboard ping pong bats, that were sent along with a complete cardboard ing pong table!
Responsive frontend grid and intelligent visitor experience system (tracking, recognition, tailoring) and tailormade event based CMS for Ziggo Dome
I call it The One. It’s a standardized, but at the same time tailormade product that can be adjusted to almost any need in minutes with simple configuration files. It’s also skinnable.
Intelligent system for aggregation and moderation of social media posts from various channels for narrowcasting and website Ziggo Dome, integrated into their tailormade CMS.
Inhouse asset management software for various customers. Relations can register for permissions to folders and objects which is all controlled from a master panel, or from the folders themselves.
Fully automated face upload, moderation and rendering cycle for a commercial that was injected with fresh uploaded photo’s of children every day for a couple of weeks. The uploaded photo’s were stored in a moderation queue and every evening a first-in-first-out selection of approved photos was made and transfered to pre-made video templates in a render queue. On completion the videos were sent to the broadcasting institution.
