As time went by, I decided to move my blog to a new host. And with the move came the oppertunity to introduce a new design. In the next weeks some things may change a lot, because I’ll be trying out various things.
D-Day: Vandaag is het dan zover
En toen werd je wakker en ineens wist je het… “ik word conducteur”.. nou…. Nee… Vanochtend werd ik wakker en mijn hele systeem wist het…. vandaag is het zover. De eerste training met de personal trainer en de daadwerkelijke start van mijn nieuwe leven. Ik heb me nog nooit zo gelukkig, bang en onzeker tegelijk […]
Kort na het verlies van mijn moeder eind mei, kregen we het nieuws dat mijn vader longkanker had. Gelukkig maar een heel klein puntje, en zonder uitzaaiingen. Hij kon zonder al te veel risico geopereerd worden om de kanker weg te snijden. Dit ging niet helemaal als verwacht en kort samengevat had ik bijna […]
A big thank you to the fixxup user group
Last night I had the honor to do my talk about highly sensitive people at the fixxup user group meetup in the jaarbeurs in Utrecht. What I didn’t know beforehand is that it would be live streamed and recorded, so that was refreshing… You can find the recorded version here: https://youtu.be/ZnCwkGqjrAU
The feeling of the earth getting shatter...
Hi everyone, Please hear me out, because I really need to write this down…. do you know this feeling, your life is going quite well, you’re really starting to get the things you want in motion, and then… you receive a message which yanks away almost all of the ground where you’re standing on (so […]
Some helpful PHP training exercises
I love to challenge my knowledge on a regular basis, just to keep up with the technology and to keep my mind flexible and adaptive. As I am quite certain I am not the only one who likes to do this, I thought it might be nice to put up a page where I will cultivate […]
Be kind, help a student through a simple...
What if you could help this hard working student (shown on the right) to graduate, just by filling out a simple questionaire? It will take you just a few minutes (i’ve spent 8) to fill in his questionaire and I’m certain he’ll appreciate it a lot… You can find the 30-question questionaire here: https://nl.surveymonkey.com/r/Z5T63HJ The background story […]
It's been a while
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I hoped 2016 would become a better year for me than 2015 has been. Now we’re 5 months in, and so far…. it’s been great! I’ve made huge progress in becoming a more extravert person, I’ve been on several training sessions to become a better speaker, and I’ve […]
Happy New Year
It’s gonna be a really short post this time. I wish all of you all the best for 2016 and please be careful when lighting fireworks. 2015 wasn’t all that great for me, let’s hope 2016 will be… Cheers!
frAgile vs Agile
We are an (fr)Agile company! Well, this is quite the statement… I know more than a few software companies which state they are (almost) completely Agile, though in fact, they aren’t. They are, in fact, FrAgile (yep.. fragile, like a thin sheet of glass) as coined (and mentioned in this presentation) by Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of the scrum […]
