Unified, Free and Open Source Software
As lead of the unified
ecosystem and the 200+ projects under its umbrella I’m trying to
make it easier for developers to develop.
unified is an ecosystem of text processing libraries, plugins, and
We endeavor to bring syntax trees and developer tools to content
markup languages and natural languages.
We’re supported by backers and sponsors like Zeit and Gatsby on
Frontend Applications, Functional Programming, and Frontend Data, University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam
As coordinator (and lecturer) of these three advanced technical courses,
I’m responsible for the curriculum and syllabus of this track, a programme
on mastering frontend libraries such as D3, frameworks such as React and
Vue, dealing with big datasets, and visualising data.
Last year I designed a system where students hand in code on GitHub
and continuous integration (Travis) checks their submissions.
When code was accepted after a manual review, their submissions were
automatically deployed to our website.
This year is different. Instead of old-school education combined with
modern media, like handing in assignments on GitHub, all students and
teachers are going to work together full-time for six weeks, with three
partners, in a lab provided by the muncipality of Amsterdam, to work
and learn together with the industry.
Backend, University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam
As coordinator (and lecturer) of Backend I’m responsible for
the curriculum and syllabus of the course, an introductory programme on
navigating the command line, using Node to build web apps, storing data
in a database, and communicating with HTTP.
