About me

A small introduction about my self

Jan Wisgerhof

Developer & Programmer from Brisbane, Australia

I am an end-to-end software developer mainly focusing on the web. My experience ranges from developing small static websites to large corporate applications. Proficient in full stack development, I bring a wealth of knowledge to any software project.

Developing is a passion for me. I love organized, structured and clean programs with a heavy focus on usability and testing. My motto is that quality always outperforms quantity in the long run.

For me one of the most enjoyable things is solving problems, something that I believe is the most important task in software development. I get satisfaction out of the puzzles in the task, and how what I am doing helps other people achieve their goals.
