This blog is about software engineering is its broadest sense. My name is Jurgen Westerhof. I was born on the 20th of May, 1982 in the Netherlands. I live my life in Utrecht as a former student on Information Sciences at Utrecht University and I earn my money doing one of my favorite things to spend time on: programming, what this blog is about. I am currently employed as a software engineer at INFI B.V.
At present time I’m hired as a “programmer and project lead” at INFI, a small (10+) company situated in Utrecht and I stopped WebKoala as I’m doing pretty much the same work there as I did with WebKoala. As the jobs I get to do vary and the people I work with inspire me a lot, since they somewhat got the same interests, I like to discuss and think about software engineering. I thought writing it down in some sort of articles might be fun and come in handy for myself in the future. So this is mainly for myself to organize my thoughts, read back and to collect my bookmarks. However I think there are a lot more people like me, who might like what I write and/or find it useful.
This blog will mainly cover programming concepts related to web aspects, programming methods and algorithms . It won’t all be language specific but since I am a PHP enthusiast most of it will focus on PHP. Among others frameworks like Zend, Wordpress, Drupal and CodeIgniter, but client side scripting is not to be forgotten as jQuery, Mootools, Prototype and others will be represented here. At the moment I plan to cover the iPhone and Android APIs as well. When something inspires me enough I tend to work them out to demos, algorithms, articles, examples, libraries or entire programs which I like to store and publish here.
Enjoy your stay and feel free to visit regularly,
