Service

Continuous Delivery

Through Brainstam I got a lot of expertise in setting up a software project on the paradigms of Continuous Delivery.

DevOps

I am best in complex ICT projects involving software development, automated testing, deployments to local linux based servers, cloud deployments and coaching the team that does it all.

Python

My primary programming language is Python. I do a lot with the Django and Flask framework. Also got plenty of experience in front-end work with HTML/CSS and JavaScript frameworks like jQuery, Angular and ReactJS.

Teaching and Training

Currently working on setting up an advanced training programme for ICT professionals to bring them up to speed in new developments.

Authoring

Writing a book on DevOps. More details soon.

Branding

I brand my work through Brainstam. We have an office in Rotterdam in the Science Tower where we do most of the off-client-site work.

Interest

I have a very brought interest in a lot of things. My greatest hobby is playing the saxophone in a Jazz-band. This I do once or twice a week.

Further more I used to fly gliders and small fixed wing aircraft but abandonned that now for the PC flight simulator. As a hobby I program interfaces to that to show my achievements on a map.

.. and I like to go to the movies...
