The Hololens is also a fantastic gaming device. The following video is of a hobby project I created in my spare time. I use my XBOX controller to move a holographic fish through the office:
I speak at conferences like Microsoft Bootcamp Amsterdam, Technical Summit Darmstadt, MVP Seattle, GUI an Design conference Berlin, DWX Developer week Nürnberg, Spartakiade Berlin, Developer Open space Leipzig.
Microsoft To-do, the sucessor of Wunderlist, built to integrate with and use Exchange Online.
Wunderlist had a huge fan base and in 2016 it was officially replaced with Microsoft Todo. Imagine my surprise when I saw my own app on the news in the Berlin subway.

Filecommander is a Universal Windows file manager that allows you to organize files from tablets, phones and laptops.
Between 2004 and 2013 I worked as a freelance Trainer and Software Engineer. Here is an overview of the projects that I’m very proud of.
Fresh out of the army, I started my first real job in Januari 1995. DLoG created hardware and software for drilling and milling machines. I installed our software and trained machine operators in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Poland.
A big part of my work was writing interfaces (post processors) between our software and factory machines. Here you see a drawing that is converted to machine instructions for a specific milling machine.
The software was created in Olching, Germany. I created the dutch translations, designed icons and screens. First for DOS, then for Windows.
Me, teaching customers how to operate the CAD/CAM software.
