About me

My name is Leon van Kammen, I was originally born in the beautiful Stadskanaal in Groningen/NL.

I’m a european DEVTREPENEUR: developer by heart, entrepeneur in mind After graduating as a softwareengineer, I worked in IT, went freelance / entrepeneurial but never left my love for hacking. Nowadays I love to work with people who are passionate about api/opensource/SaaS/BaaS/PaaS-tech.

My take on software creation

There are 3 ways of making software: the correct way, and the incorrect way, and the succesful way.
In the end it boils down to transparency, playfullness, non-attachment to code or design, KISS (KeepItSimpleStupid), and keeping iterations real by using MoSCoW.
My favourite model is the Chaos model since its one of the few models which promotes non-linear progress. A methodology which also does this well is kanban
