Hi there 👋

  • I know things about compiler construction, language runtime internals, operating systems and databases (a.k.a. “deep back-end stuff”).
  • 🏣 I currently help the folk at Cockroach Labs, the creators of CockroachDB, with leadership things, architecture things, engineering culture and some code janitorial duties.
  • What I try to do best:
    • seeing the present as it is, and the future as it should be,
    • improving projects, situations, myself,
    • leading by example, teaching and being a good friend.
  • 💬 Ask me about power dynamics, management, unix, the history of computing, and art in video games.
  • 🌱 Main hobby: help other folk's projects grow. Latest discovery: Charm and Bubbletea 💖!
  • 🎥 I try to stream some programming weekly over on Twitch: Come hang out every Friday!
  • In case you're interested, see the tools of the trade.
  • 🔗 Check out my website for blog posts and more!
  • 🐦 Follow me on Twitter:
  • 🏠 I live near Amsterdam in The Netherlands, but I travel a lot.

Glad to see you here!
