Hey, I’m Elte.
I don’t know who you are, so I don’t know how to describe myself to you.
If you’re into sports, I’m the dude that loves to run, climb obstacles, and lift weights. I love it so much in fact that you may have noticed I’m listing this first. I think it’s because it keeps me sane. Don’t tell anyone.
If you encountered my name in a more “professional” context, well, that’s possible too. I have a passion for technology and I’ve been writing code in some form or another since I was about 10 years old, when I was building and maintaining the website for my football club. I’m sure the site’s visitors had to endure a lot of
<marquee /> and XSS-vulnerable PHP chat boxes during that time, but hey, people weren’t that familiar with the internet so it was all good.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Amsterdam, and a master’s in Computational Science from the joint UvA / VU program. Currently I’m employed at NovaCair, where I’m working as a frontend, backend and app developer on software that makes people’s lives easier when they need to go to the hospital.
Finally, I also like playing guitar and singing. It has been on the back burner for a few years, because life gets busy, and some times if you want to do things right it means you have to let other things go. Nevertheless I thoroughly enjoy picking up a guitar and singing my lungs out, and if the day had an extra hour that’s probably how I’d be spending it.
