Creating software is awesome. That is why I do it myself, I teach children and students how to do it and coach companies how to do it efficiently. I have much experience in agile software development and like to build products or explore the feasibility of ideas. With my academic background and my industry experience it is easy for me to switch between theory and practice.

Wat I work on currently

Currently, I am working on various things:

  • As independent coach / trainer / consultant in agile software development I work for various clients.
  • At the University of Groningen, I lecture the Problem Analysis and Software Design course. At the Hanze university, I assist and examine students in their thesis projects.
  • I keep myself busy as co-founder of Groningen Programmeert, an initiative for teaching programming to kids. I teach children and teachers what programming is, I develop course material for schools (for example WebHacker) and am primarily responsible for the Kieswijzer Programmeren and Code in de Keuken.
  • Together with Bastiaan Zijlema, I develop GimmeGimme, a site for wish-lists (Dutch verlanglijstje) and lootjes trekken.


A lot of things I do turn out to be projects or products. Below is a selection of things I work(ed) on.
