Welcome to this blog

Hi and welcome to my personal space in the blogosphere. I am a software developer specializing in Microsoft technology at a global information technology services company. My interests lie mostly with Enterprise Application Integration using Microsoft .NET and BizTalk. I am always trying to stay on top of new technologies, which at the moment are WCF and WF.

I live in the Netherlands, somewhere near Amsterdam. Besides my day job I'm currently obtaining a master's degree in the social sciences. The programme I'm taking is Policy, Communication and Organization at the VU University Amsterdam, where I study organizations from different perspectives using theories from sociology, psychology, public organization, business administration and strategic management.

On this blog I will post about these two passions of mine and try to combine them. So when I write about new technology I'll try to explain the business value of it. When I write about organizational issues I'll try to relate them to my daily work and potentially that of many other developers out there. Stay tuned!
