Grew up in Amsterdam, now living in downtown Vancouver. There are definitely more mountains here.
My first internship was with the first company in the Netherlands to teach C++ (www.datasim.nl). During this internship I got to know Object Oriented Design, which kept my interest until this day. In the mean time, I have worked for different companies in the Netherlands and Canada. I have done most of my recent work in C#, developing Database/Web/Desktop applications.
I am currently working as a freelance Software Developer for PHI International in Amsterdam.
The CodeProject rocks!
