I write code, do stuff in the cloud, architect cloud systems, am a speaker and write blog posts.
Among other things…
First and foremost, I am a husband and proud father of 2 boys. Living in the south of the Netherlands, in the beautiful
province of North-Brabant, some tend to call me a ‘Brabo’. And I’m proud to be one.
I love to watch soccer, play tennis and go into the forest for a hike or on my mountainbike. Although I like to play games,
I’ve hardly been able to find the time. So it’s been a while.
A long, long time ago…
It all started when I started playing with a Commodore 64. I used to load games by (re)winding the attached tape deck to the
right location based on the counter and loading games from there. Even small differences in the counters between different
tape decks could cost you a lot of time. 🤣
After that my interest in computers grew with each machine I encountered. I remember saving up for months to be able to go
and buy myself 8 MB of RAM memory, doubling the amount of RAM of my 486. We’ve come a long way since then, and there’s still
so much more to come. What a great time to be in software development!
During my education in Higher Informatics I started working in the software development business somewhere early 1999. Over
the years I’ve worked as a developer, lead developer, team lead, project leader and software architect. The last years I
expanded my architecture skills focusing on Cloud Architecture. Microsoft Azure is my Cloud
platform of choice. In May 2019 I’ve been rewarded with the Microsoft Azure MVP
I’ve been working at Betabit since September 2012, my current role is that of Principal Cloud Architect.
