Hi! I’m Leon. Follow me on my journey into webdevelopment and coding!
I have lived on the island of Goeree-Overflakkee for almost 9 years and I am married to a real islander, Jessica. We recently moved to Ouddorp and are busy working on our new home.
After a fine career as a system administrator and software developer in the graphic industry, retail and media, as an employee and entrepreneur, last year I was offered the opportunity to specialize in an aspect of IT that really makes my heart beat faster: web development.
On April 29, 2020 I successfully completed a full-time remote training of 6 weeks in Front-end Web Development at Winc Academy. Part of the selection process was a mental ability test, which showed that I have HBO+ (Bachelor) work and thinking level. During the very intensive training I have experienced that I am able to process new information at a rapid pace and to learn new programming languages and toolsEven before the certificate was awarded, I was able to start working in the role of a web developer as a brand new ‘junior’. The first project that I worked on independently is a full stack web application for healthcare providers active in Youth Care. I have now gained a year of experience in full stack development and I am ready for a new adventure!
From September 2021 to November 2022 I worked as a Front-end Developer at Redkiwi. Redkiwi is an ambitious digital agency where I’ve learned to work in Scrum teams for a wide range of clients, on new projects as well as further development on existing projects.
