I’ve been interested in software development for as long as I can remember. I strongly believe that understanding the business is a must to make correct trade-offs and writing good software, which is why I also have a big interest in domain-driven design and software architeture. Speaking of code, I would mainly consider myself a backend developer who doesn’t shy away from the frontend if need be.
I'm into open-source and have created several popular libraries for the JVM platform (for example Occurrent, PowerMock, Rest Assured and Awaitility). I like learning new things and I have experience in different languages such as Java, Kotlin, Clojure, Scala, and Groovy.
Frequent speaker at user groups, companies and conferences such as Öredev, Jazoon, Devoxx, and JFokus.
Besides software, I’m also intrigued by philosophy, cognition, mathematics, and science in general.
