Hi, I'm Sander!
I ❤ making web applicationsWant to know more?
I'm Sander Ledegen, a Belgian developer who is professionally active in Java. While I really like Java, I also love to mess around with some of the more recent technologies and frameworks like Node.js and AngularJS; mostly until it all goes down and starts burning.
When I'm not fiddling with computer bits, you may find me reading a book, hitting the gym or doing quality checks on the beer at various parties — a nice excuse, if I say so myself 😉. I also like hiking and travelling, cooking or just going out to dinner if the former doesn't turn out to be a great success 😇.
A rather concise overview of what I have been up to in my professional life and what projects I've been involved in.
