Inspired by Derek Sivers who set off the /now movement, here you’ll find what I’m up to in life right now.

What I’m doing now

  • I’m spending a lot of time figuring out how to position myself as a good manager and tech lead for my team. We did another Team Canvas session with a recent new-joiner, and the team consensus is that they keep on improving with each one we do. This time I allowed people to prepare up-front, as described in Team Canvas preparation hints.
  • I’m currently going through training to join the Red Cross bike team in District Kennemerland. One of the things we practiced was riding our bicycles down stairs and let me tell you, trying that out for the first time sure gives one a rush of adrenaline.
  • Lately, I’ve also rediscovered my love for the Python programming language. I have focused more on Rust and Elixir over the past years, but Python is what I grew up with originally and it hasn’t stood still during that time. It’s been fun seeing what’s improved while I was away.
