Hans started working in the software industry 20+ years ago as a system administrator. Via application administration he soon moved into software development, where he was bitten by the C++ virus. Not wanting to be cured, he is always searching for the next cool thing C++.
Having worked at several companies in the past, Hans now works at CGI in the Netherlands, where he is improving a legacy system for managing high loads of HPC jobs. As part of his work, Hans is introducing modern C++ concepts in the code, and teaching his co-workers about it.
When not working or being otherwise engaged behind a computer, Hans prefers to be outdoors for sports, a walk or hiking in nature with friends.
