About me

Some background on me and my blog

I am a software engineer / project lead with a background in industrial and systems engineering.

I work for QAware, a non-commodity software engineering company with a strong emphasis on quality and swift results. QAware is primarily known for their expertise in cloud computing. While our current projects are mainly focused on cloud native technology, we also have a history as a software troubleshooter, identifying and fixing bugs, bottlenecks, and anomalies in complex systems. In order to keep up with this rapidly evolving technology, a lot of effort goes into research and training. If you are interested in software engineering, you might want to take a look at the QAware Blog.

In my day-to-day business I mostly work with Java (the enterprisy kind), but I am also interested in Kotlin, C# and Python.

I have been using Linux since around 1999. At the moment, my primary distribution is Fedora. My toolbox therefore contains mostly open source, first and foremost vim - my editor of choice.

As a remnant of my studies, I read a lot about optimization techniques, operations research, and economics.

Apart from that, I enjoy science fiction, a good graphic novel, rowing, and playing the piano.
