My name is Vincent Driessen and I'm a software engineer mainly interested in web development and programming tools and technologies. Some of my interests include modern JavaScript, Node, Elm, Python, Vim, and Git. This is my personal blog where I share my thought and ideas.

My usual nickname is nvie, hence the name of this blog.

I'm located in The Netherlands, but have worked as a remote engineer since early 2012. I currently work at Simple Contacts as tech lead for partnership integrations. I've previously been the CTO of GitPrime, and have worked for in New York as a full-stack engineer, and for YesGraph as their tech lead.

My passion lies in building beautiful (web-based) products, from idea inception to shipping the final product. I care about the full stack, doing anything from system architecture, back-end and front-end work.

I have a master's degree in Computer Science from Radboud University in Nijmegen, NL. Basically, I'm a tech enthusiast who breathes code and loves creating beautiful software. I'm an active contributor to open source projects and maintain a few of my own.
