Experienced problem solver

On the business level: my mission in life is adding value to the lives of others, through the complementary impact of software that is developed towards its end-user and (secondary) its owner. On a more personal front: I find true happiness in experiencing alike minds, learning from different ones, and applying the gained knowledge in a constructive, collaborative way.

I have 10+ years of extensive professional experience in developing innovative, complex web apps, object-oriented programming, performance optimization (both client and server) etc. I like to reuse existing open source software, but I also know when to develop vanilla code for specific functionalities.
Additionally I have 1+ years experience as the CTO for an SME and 2+ years CPO & CTO experience from three startups.
