Jovi De Croock

Passionate 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 turnmed me to study software engineering, freelancer assignments and my job.

Nowadays my passion mainly goes to the architectural side of programming. Finding elegant solutions to complex behavior is my favorite challenge. Another thing I find a deep interest in is optimising performance.

At this point I am 24 years old and trying to learn the best practices from my awesome co-workers, in the hope of being able to one day share my knowledge with everyone.
