About Me

I’m Jos de Jong, living and working in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I’m happily married with the nicest girl in the world, and we have a lovely little girl and a boy to take care of. I believe God created this marvelous world where we can live, love, discover, and develop.

I’ve studied at Delft University of Technology, and have a Bachelor Mechanical Engineering, and a Master Systems and Control. After my study I’ve worked in ICT and automation, and am currently working as a Software Engineer at Almende, a Dutch research company specialized in information and communication technologies.

I’m a passionate programmer, both at work and in my spare time. I’m pragmatic and have a lot of attention for details. Always overflowing with great ideas to work on (which tend to pop up at times I should sleep or when taking a shower). I have 19 years of programming experience and am familiar with languages such as a various Basic languages, C++, Java, Android, PHP, Python, JavaScript and node.js, HTML, CSS, SQL, Matlab, and PLC programming. I’m always looking around for new tools, techniques, and languages to make programming even more fun. I enjoy the creative process that programming is, especially these moments where you finally figure out the right way to express something complicated in a clear and easy to understand way.

Things I’m interested in include modeling of dynamic systems, mathematics, robotics, programming, automation, distributed systems, machine learning, software agent technology, networks, web applications, and more. There is just so much interesting stuff to work on!
