Robert van Geerenstein

Freelance Software Developer

About 19 years ago I started creating my first scripts as a hobby, since 2007 I build awesome web applications for a living.
From little scripts that make my daily life more comfortable, to custom build, high load/high traffic web applications, created with the latest techniques out there.
I love playing around with new techniques and languages, thinking of new sideprojects and keeping up with the developments of the online community.

I am available for freelance work on custom web applications.
