About Me

My name is Krijn Schaap, I am 35 years old and live in Almere, The Netherlands with my wife and son. Besides computers, my interests include electronics, photography, working on our house or just watching a nice movie (like Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Star Trek, the Inside Man or from Paris with Love).

While I have received some formal education on software development, I am primarily a self-taught programmer. I have used various languages since my first experience with basic on the commodore 64, including a large number of proprietary languages used in settopbox development.

Personal projects usually involve the technical challenges behind (massive multiplayer) games or using the computer to control electronics.
