I have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Delft University of Technology. I have a double Master’s degree in Distributed Systems and Services from Aalto University and Cloud Infrastructure from University of Rennes 1.
I work at The Things Industries. In my role as “Lead Stack Engineer” I’m responsible for building The Things Stack, an open source LoRaWAN® Network Server. I also work on the operations of the global, hosted LoRaWAN® networks of The Things Industries and The Things Network.
My main programming language is Go. I design, implement and work with gRPC and RESTful APIs. I keep data in SQL databases such as PostgreSQL, NoSQL data stores such as Redis, and sometimes in cloud datastores. I usually implement pub/sub systems using MQTT, AMQP, NATS, or cloud-specific pub/sub systems.
Although most of my side projects never left my computer, some turned out to be at least a little bit useful for myself or my colleagues. Those projects can be found in this list or on my GitHub.
