Kris

Hi, I’m Kris. I’m a professional software engineer, speaker and trainer.

I’ve been working with computers and electronics for over thirty years, twenty of which professionally. I am very concerned about writing modern, expressive, quality code, the majority of which is C++ and Rust. I also have extensive experience in web development and development operations (devops) technologies.

My presentation style is engaged and enthousiastic, aiming for a fun and educational experience. With a strong and experienced software engineering background, I’m able to break down complex subjects and make them understandable, as well as keeping in touch with reality and show practical applications.

I’m also a trainer at High Tech Institute.

Biography

Ever since the first time Kris got in touch with his dad’s 1983 ZX Spectrum, he was captivated by the wonderful world of computer programming. In 1995, he learned to program ‘Pacman’ in x86 real-time assembly, which was soon followed by learning C and then C++ and Rust, which came to be his bread and butter. He is very serious about code quality and is mostly interested in C++, Rust, Linux, programming languages/paradigms, software architecture and performance optimization. He currently works as the lead developer at ViNotion and as a trainer at High Tech Institute in Eindhoven (NL). If he is not working, coding for fun or doing dad-/husband-related things, he is probably playing the guitar or running out in the woods.

Education

Kris studied mechatronics at Hochschule Niederrhein, Krefeld (DE), and electrical engineering at the TU/e in Eindhoven (NL).
