About me

Latest update: January 16, 2020

I am a software engineer, living in the Netherlands. I was born almost 50 years ago.

I develop software; mostly websites, but also the occasional CLI or daemon. Python has long been my go to programming language, but I find I am moving more and more towards Javascript. Lately I am even drawn to Typescript.

I prefer open technologies: I use open source software (OSS) whenever I can. And practically the only times that I can't, involve working together with others on Microsoft Office documents. My preferred tools include:

  • Ubuntu, but sometimes I need to work on Windows. Therefore, all my tools preferably work on both.
  • I bounce back and forth between Emacs and other editors for coding.
  • Git for version management and Github for sharing my code, issue management, and (Kanban) boards.
  • Docker for managing development environments when pipenv or yarn are not enough.
  • org-mode and sometimes Markdown for plain text editing.

Have a look at this blog post to find out how I set up this blog.
