So who is this baldy beardy guy?

I have worked in many roles ending with “Engineer” but currently enjoy the role of Machine Learning Engineer.

Software is much more about people than technology which is why I’m quite a fan of what’s expressed in the Agile Manifesto (and not so much of “Agile” being shoehorned into organizations).

Some more about me:

  • I was born and raised in South Africa
  • I’m a husband and a parent
  • I love solving puzzles (fortunately a lot of these are in my job)
  • I studied mechatronics engineering but transitioned into software (like so many engineers)
  • I live on the outskirts of Amsterdam (and love many things about the Netherlands)
  • I love beer and books, preferably combined with a beach chair and some sun
  • Sailing in any form is awesome

This blog is an attempt to get me to practice writing more and finding a bit more courage in sharing my learnings/wisdom/failures with others.
