Now - September 2020
When I stumbled across Koos Looijesteijn’s now page, I had never seen such a page. But apparently many more have been inspired by Derek Sivers' /now page movement.
I liked the idea, so here goes:
What am I doing now?
Living in a small town called Huissen in the Netherlands with my wife and 2 sons.
Working at a big lighting company in the south of the Netherlands, automating release and system test infrastructure.
During the evenings, or in the weekends I spend some time on CoderDojo Nijmegen of which I’m a mentor and the developer of the new Hugo based website. It is open-source and can be found on our Github pages here.
Summer holiday is over and my wife and children are back to school. I’m continuing to work from home as I have done since March 9th due to Covid-19 measures in the Netherlands.
Using a VPN connection into my company’s network, I can work in my home office as if at the office: coding, documenting and calling with colleagues. I’m using IntelliJ, Teams, Jira, Confluence, SSH tunnels and more.
Beside sitting at my desk, I also started losing weight and sporting since the start of this year. With some backlash during the first Covid-19 months, I continued full throttle at the end of July when my wife decided to join in. So, now you will continue to find us in the gym three times a week.
See you soon! Bas
