My name is Martin.
I live in the Netherlands, and when the summer sun does not allow me to enjoy the dutch outdoors I spend my time with one of my many passions. All of these are featured in this blog:
- Tech (mainly software development)
- Design (Art, photoshop and architecture)
- Other random idea’s
My first introduction to the wonderful world of personal computers was way back in 1988, at this time I was 7 years old when my dad brought home a 286. A few years later (somewhere around 1993) a friend showed me a program called QBasic. I was hooked. Limited to a building help file and some samples I created visual effects, games and a tracker program to make music with a Adlib soundcard.
In the year 1996 the internet became more accessible and my first webpage was born. A small site devoted to Nintendo 64 games. I should mention I was lucky enough to be born in the 80’s and grow up with some of the best consoles and games.
Now at age 34 I have 15 years experience working as a professional software developer. My main focus points are user interface design and framework architecture. I’ve worked as main developer at Genetics located in the Netherlands Almere until 2005, from that point I’ve worked as a developer at Lead Solutions located in Zeist until 2012.
