Hi, I’m Maarten Van Hoof, a Front-end Developer and Developer Advocate from Belgium.

I have a profound love for loud and emotive music. In 2017, I listened to approximately 51.000 minutes of music. To blow off some steam, me and my buddies in ROYCE rock out the local and non-local watering holes from time to time.

I have a Professional Bachelor Multimedia and Communication Technology, specialized in Audiovisual productions. However, I quickly refactored myself to web-development due to a much better work-life relationship at the time.

All the knowledge I currently possess is self-taught through 10+ years of experience in the working field and a great amount curiosity.
