Jovi De Croock

Software Engineer

When growing up I discovered a passion for IT, this grew into me working at a hardware store and eventually into finding my passion for programming. This passion turned me to study software engineering, find freelancer assignments and eventually my first job.

Nowadays I find myself enjoying work on both front-end as well as back-end systems. Finding elegant solutions to complex behavior is my favorite challenge. Another thing I find a deep interest in is optimising performance.

A second passion that has grown over the years is open-source, I love working in the open and I love collaborating with others to solve problems.
