👋 Hey there
Lifetime developer, Sci-fi addicted, cat squeezer, the last baklava bender, good lyrics detector, meeting doodler, bench activist, entrepreneur-ish.
🐱 Who am I?
Hola Amigos! Kon'nichiwa! I'm a freelance consultant, software Merlin, architectural samurai, conference Ryan Reynolds, instructor extraordinaire, and open-source enthusiast based in the charming city of The Hague, The Netherlands 🇳🇱 (Yes, "the" in both). With nearly two decades of experience, I've mastered the art of juggling code and orchestrating digital symphonies.
As the maestro behind Fria Tech, Repsy, and co-founder of Zyfera and MagicAccents, I've left my digital footprint across the landscape of technology. My playground includes the realms of Web, SaaS, Cloud, Microservices, Java, Kotlin, TypeScript and the Spring Framework, where I've contributed so often that they practically named a coffee blend after me. I even unveiled the magical Lilo, an open-source GraphQL stitching library, at the prestigious SpringOne 2023.
I have a cat named Minnosh (cutified (if there's such a word) version of "mini" in Turkish). I love sports cars, and motorbikes and do like painting or wrapping things that I care about. Unlike most of the nerds, I like drawing stuff. Can't say very good at hand drawings but It's really fun to use the open-source vector graphics program Inkscape.
