About Me

My name is Bart Mathijssen, I am a freelance software developer from Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Currently, I am a volunteer at CoderDojo Tilburg, teaching the new generation about technology and maintaining their website and other systems. I am also involved in the organization of FOSDEM Junior.

I am a free software and privacy advocate, and spend a lot of my time in the open-source space. Because of my strong beliefs about these topics, I try to be an active member of the community. I do this by not only contributing source code but also by representing projects, answering questions in the forums, or taking part in community activities. This is one of the reasons I am an active member of the Codeberg e.V. non-profit organization. I think Codeberg is a great example of an organization that represents my personal beliefs.

Previously, I worked as a web developer at Tambien, where I developed web applications for the manufacturing industry. These applications included webshops, landing pages, planning tools, and intranets. A selection of projects I have worked on is available on the projects page. The variety of these applications has given me a skill set that covers various tools and technologies.
