Jens started the first version of codeboje somewhere in 2004 as a wiki for common developing tasks faced day in and day out at work. His goal was to provide a resource for developers he has worked with. Unfortunately, none of them wanted to join, so it eventually became a private wiki.
Sometime in 2007 it was revived as a fun project by two experienced Java guys who still enjoy coding in their spare time and exploring new things outside of the work related field. We explored Python, game development, algorithms, tools and more.
After a break, we are back and refocussed on providing value for people building APIs - technology and business wise.
Founder, owner, and currently the only writer for the blog. He loves dabbling with code and exploring new terrains; be it code, ways to build better teams and software or personal development. As a longtime Java guy, he helps companies in getting better at building software (with a focus on APIs) in the role of a software architect. He recently moved from employee to building his own business.
Started the blog together with Jens and is a long time partner and writer. He developed pySVG and in his day job he’s now doing management in a three-letter company.
