Welcome to jan-jaap.net

Let me introduce myself. My name is Jan-Jaap Fahner, I'm 35 years old, married, and father of two lovely children, Machteld and Boudewijn.

We live in Gouda, a small Dutch city known to many for its cheese, which, surprisingly, is not actually made in Gouda at all.

I work for Guerrilla Games of Killzone fame, as a senior programmer. You can find out more about my professional life through my LinkedIn profile, or alternatively read my resume. You can contact me by mail at jan-jaap@jan-jaap.net.

In my spare time (which is in rather short supply these days) I dabble in programming language design, and work on other various projects. I'm also a fervent cook, interested in European and Asian cuisine.

I use this website as a portal to my webmail, my source code repositories, and my home network, but other than that, there's not a lot to find here. You're probably better off at one of the following sites:

Ars Technica - "The art of technology".

Boing Boing - "A directory of wonderful things".

Slashdot - "News for nerds, stuff that matters".

xkcd - "A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language".

Welcome to the personal website of Jan-Jaap Fahner. I am a Dutch software developer, currently working for Guerrilla Games as a Senior Programmer. I mainly use this website as a portal for some personal stuff, so you might find it rather dull here.
