Hello, I'm Simon

a software developer

About

I have been in the software business for about 15 years now, starting out as a apprentice in a small company, where I created my first Windows desktop applications. Later in my career I focused more on web and mobile development. Over the years I've gained a lot of experience in client- and server-side programming and I've learned a variety of technologies and frameworks.

I'm constantly trying to keep up with the latest trends (I'm very keen on node.js, angular.js, react.js, polymer, meteor... at the moment) and I love learning new concepts and programming technics. I'm happy to say that after all those years programming is still my biggest passion!
