Full Biography

================================
=== Learn a new language twice a year ===
================================

(Andrew Hunt in the "Pragmatic Programmer")

A little about me:
============
I've worked in the IT industry for 15 years, and have been working with IT technologies for about 20 years. Currently I am self-employed as a business analyst / IT consultant, specializing in XML and XSLT related technologies and setting up offshore teams for (cheap) development and deployment.

Extensive experience with Java platforms, including JSF and EJB, on systems as WebSphere and BEA Weblogic. In recent years I've done a bit less Java.

Also extensive experience with the .NET platform, with C#, VB.NET, C++, for WinForms and ASP.NET. Indeed, I do both Java and .NET and I'm the ideal person to talk to if you have to make a choice between the two.

Lives by
======
It's my task and duty to choose the right tool for the task at hand. That means that as a professional consultant and company owner, I make sure to learn new technologies and methodologies every day so that I can choose wisely.

What I can do for you
