I was even programming in Basic on a Commodore 64 at some point, which was old school even in 2000.
After websites I became more interested in user interaction, so I stumbled upon PHP and MySQL. I liked building interactive websites, and guestbooks was still a thing back then.
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.
About the blog
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… And I’m also a pretty nice guy (I think :)).
I started this blog because I wanted to write some stuff down for future reference and I’m interested in what others think on my view on the matter. I hope this will help me to improve my skills.
