I am a computer programmer living in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. My current work is mostly in CsharpLanguage
, as is most of my programming at home. I also still do some VisualBasic
. Back in 1989 I worked on the beginnings of Computer Integrated Manufacturing using tools like C and ORACLE. I did some work in C after that too, but it's been a long time since I really worked in C, apart from the occasional recent excursion when it seemed the best tool for the job. I also worked for a long time on writing database applications using the "Magic" RAD environment. A while ago I experimented with PerlLanguage
and messed about in LispLanguage
(or more accurately EmacsLisp
) to customise EmacsEditor
. Did I mention that I also work with a fair amount of ExtensibleMarkupLanguage
Other interests include the LightweightDirectoryAccessProtocol
and libraries that are useful in that context.
I recently started looking at PythonLanguage
- which seems pretty good. Now that I'm running a LinuxOperatingSystem
at home I appreciate anything that gives me leverage on disparate operating systems. I suppose I'm also LearningLinux
although it's not too daunting if you ever worked on UnixOperatingSystem
. Other home projects include investigations into ZopeApplicationServer
I work as a consultant, mainly using the TridionWebContentManagement?
system and generally using Microsoft tools.
When I get the time, I'm into EnglishFolkMusic?
, although spare time is always at a premium, even more so now that I'm a family man. I still try to find time to indulge my obsessions, whether computer-based or not.
