I'm keeping a blog here about whatever is on my mind. Mostly Frontend Architecture related, but I will not be limited by that if I want to write about other stuff

About me

With more than 25 years of experience in Software Development, working in companies of all sizes and stages of maturity, as well as different industries, I have a unique perspective on how to achieve great results in software development. I quickly assess situations, identify areas for improvement and get on it!

While most of my career I have been a Software Developer (or 'Engineer' if you like) myself, I've taken on other roles like Team Manager, Architect and most recently Engineering Director. I still code (for fun and profit), just not as much as I used to.

I have been programming Perl for more than 15 years before I decided to dive more into Frontend and all things JavaScript (TypeScript, NodeJS, Angular, etc). For the last 8 years, this has been my language of choice. However, in situations where I don't have to do the coding myself, I do not care about the exact tech stack that much - as long as it does the job.

Livery stable

Together with my wife, in 2010 we established 'Pensionstal De Groene Heerd' - a livery stable.
My wife (Mickey Groeneweg) is the driving force behind this, and I assist her where possible.


For a few years I have been working together with Jan Peter Mulder in his photography business called MulderFotografie. Occasionally I still assist him in my free time.
