What makes you "tick"?

I love learning new stuff. I constantly try to stay up to date with all new developments in software development. After I have learned something new I love to share with others. Giving presentations or training to a willingly group of people, helping a customer understand a solution for his problems or just having the ability to play with a new technology are the reasons I started in software development.

Where do you live?

I live in a place called Groningen in the Netherlands with my wife Elise. I feel at home when I have a couple of good friends around me.

Why are you active in the Rangers program?

I love sharing knowledge and learning new stuff with other passionate people.

What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why?

The best project I worked on was a small extension named Folder Management for Azure DevOps. This extension was the first Ranger extension. It became so popular that Microsoft integrated the extension into Azure DevOps itself.
