Hi, my name is Pieter Joost van de Sande and I’m a software engineer for almost a decade.
I'm currently employed by wercker, a startup based in Amsterdam. We are building an integral software delivery platform in the cloud. At wercker I mainly write NodeJS, Python, Go and Shell Script. Next to writing code I'm responsible for community engagement and support. Previously I was a thought leader at atos, one of worlds leading international information technology services companies. This is where I received the Atos TRP award and therefor I was a distinguished member of technical staff.
Next to the employment I play an active role in the software development community. I've presented at conferences like Microsoft TechDays, Software Development Conference and NDC. I'm a one of the founders of Devnology and I help to organise meetings and run a software development podcast. My active role in the community is recognised by Microsoft who awarded me with the exclusive Microsoft MVP award.
To clear my head and recharge my batteries I run barefoot.
The reason this website looks awesome is David Ensinger. I used his site design as the foundation for this one. I develop mainly on a MacBook Pro (can't live without a retina display anymore) that runs Ubuntu 13.10 with AwesomeWM, a tailing window manager. Sublime Text 3 is my primarily editor. Type is set in Open Sans, which is served by Google Web Fonts. Posts are composed in Markdown and syntax is highlighted with Pygments.
