About

I am a graduate student pursuing my Master's degree in Software Engineering. I have been working part time at listed real estate company Eurocommercial Properties since early 2015. At Eurocommercial I am part of the team that works on several Open Source applications in the real estate domain, including Estatio and Relatio.

Early 2018, I got interested in smart contract development on Ethereum. I started my Ethereum journey with my Bachelor's thesis, which I wrote on the subject of using blockchain to validate audit trail data. I continued with the ConsenSys Developer Program to learn all there is about smart contract development. During this time I developed the truffle-assertions package for unit testing smart contracts. I wrote two articles about this package, and I gave a talk at TruffleCon 2018 on how to use events inside smart contract tests.

At the end of October 2018 I participated in the BCHDEVCON Amsterdam hackathon with pandacash-cli, which we won convincingly. Since then, we have been working on improving the pandacash CLI we developed at the hackathon, and expanding the Panda Suite of Bitcoin Cash tools.

Right now I'm focused on finishing my Master's degree coming August. In the mean time I'm working on making blockchain development more accessible to regular software developers by creating better tooling with truffle-assertions and PandaCash.
