Roel Ruijters 

lead developer

Roel has been experimenting with software since the Commodore64 appeared. Between all that lost computer time he found time to successfully complete his studies in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Technical Information Management. After that he entered the world of software development and after 25 years he still finds it amazing!
 
He has worked in secondment for large (APG, Oce, ASML) and smaller companies in the last ten years and joined Bimforce in 2017. The current Bimforce sotware is primarily web solutions based on NoSql databases. For every solution the challenge is to translate the requirements (sometimes just a scribbled A4) into a working cloud solution. At Bimforce, Roel puts in to practise his extensive knowledge of a wide variety of development languages, such as  C#, VB.Net, VB/VBA, Javascript, Objective-C and Pascal.
 
After his work he is busy with adolescent children and tries to walk as much as possible (ideally somewhere in the mountains) In the remaining time he tries to stay away from computers, but thats a futile attempt.
