I was even programming in Basic on a Commodore 64 at some point, which was old school even in 2000.
After graduating from high school I went to an IT university where I was introduced to Java. This is where I first got in touch with professional programming using object oriented programming and design patterns. During my education I did internships in PHP, Java and C#. I actually liked PHP back then, due to it being a lightweight language which was easily to set-up.
When college was done I started working at Accenture, a big multi-national consulting company where I learning to program with SAP ABAP.
After 5 years of working at Accenture I switched to my current employer; Oliver IT. At Oliver IT I started as an ABAP/UI5 developer for a few months, and then I was assigned to a Backbone.js front-end project with a Node.js back-end.
Currently I’m holding a senior/lead developer position at Oliver IT and many of my colleagues are asking for my advise on their technical challenges. I think they ask me because I like to help them and I can usually answer their questions.
