An introductory of myself

Bas Stroosnijder

To see what I can do for you, see this page.

Hi, my name is Bastiaan Stroosnijder, but good luck pronouncing that. My friends just call me Bas. I’m a 28 year old web/software engineer currently living in the Ntherlands. In July of 2017 they found a critical bug in genetic code which made my heartmuscle grow a lot larger that normal. As there is no fix yet, the surgeon proposed a workaround that consisted of adding an display: none; to the .septim {} class of my heart.

Currently I’m the Lead Developer of one of the teams at PGGM where, together with about ten other teams, we are working hard at rebuilding and improving an old monolithic in-house piece of software. I derive satisfaction from setting up automatic process which help us improve the quality of our part of software and sharing that knowledge in-house. At PGGM we build mainly proprietary software, but I have a certain love for everything open source. You can always find me working on something over at my Github Account.

My current project is my blog and this theme. With it, I want to try and reach out to anyone interested, which would be mostly developers I’m guessing, by expressing my creative side. I want to share the high’s and low’s of my life and be able to write about it. I also want to try and better the world by writing more open source code that anyone can use to improve their projects. And ofcouse promoting open source projects by using them in mine.

My hobbies are something I would really like to share as well. Stuff I love to do include: hiking, cooking, mountainbiking, fitness and volunteering at the local forrestry. I’m hoping that you will be interested in reading about these subjects.

I hope you enjoy reading my stuff as much as I struggle with writing it. That way, we both improve a little bit every day
