Who am I?
My name is Jurgen Brouwer. I was born on the 8th of July 1988 and I have lived in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) nearly whole my life. I'm interested in technology, learning new things, occasionally playing games and just having plain fun. As a child I always wanted to be an architect. However once I came in contact with software development I soon knew that was where I excelled in. Nowadays I'm building software in many areas ranging from websites to applications and mobile applications, which still makes me kind of an architect.
What do I do?
A lot! After high school I chose to study Computer Science at the Eindhoven University of Technology. However that study did not suit me. It focussed on theory too much and I rather like to build things! I made the decision to continue my educational career at Fontys Hogeschool Eindhoven which had much more practical subjects. This study was just my thing and everything went fast from there. I did my final internship at Redesignme and after I graduated as a Software Engineer with a minor in Smart Mobile in February 2012 they offered me a job and I accepted that opportunity.
In October 2013 however I was forced to look for a new job and I did not have to search long to find it at Peercode (previously known as in2sports). I started working there full-time in November 2013 and since then I had the opportunity to work on various large projects for different customers. Including customers in the medical, transport and commercial sector.
As of April 2014 I live in Tiel, which is much closer to work and where I finally have my own home.
