I am an experienced fullstack/backend developer, born and raised in Amsterdam with modern php as primary language.
At age 11 I got my first private computer, a monochrome hercules 286 machine in my bedroom and the moment I discovered a program called q-basic i found out i could let the machine do what I want. I spent most of my teen years together with a friend I knew from primary school trying to recreate DOS games that we kids loved to play back then in q-basic. Later on I also worked a bit with pascal when i acquired a compiler. At the end of my high school years I transitioned into web development and did a couple of small html projects for SME's.
All with all it seemed the logical step to study computer science, there I had proper education in object oriented programming in Java but apart from all the practical classes lectures and theory wasn't the thing for me. Meanwhile I did one project with a classmate at school in php4, since it looked a bit like java but then as a scripting language.
In 2003, at age 19 I dropped out to start doing software engineering as a daytime job, using php and from there on the rest is resume material.
My profile nowadays could be best described as fullstack leaning to backend; I have done quite some frontend in both professional work as side projects recent years, I do however come from a backend background.
