About Me

Hi! My name is Jonathan Van Eenwyk. I’m a software consultant with a penchant for tackling hard problems with creative solutions.

My development philosophy could perhaps be summarized this way:

To ask the ‘right’ question is far more important than to receive the answer.” — Jiddu Krishnamurti

This means never falling into the trap of using a hammer to solve every problem like it’s a nail. For me, this philospopy has given me the privilege of using many different programming languages and frameworks1, recognizing that each one has its areas of strengths and weaknesses. And that’s the fun of it 2!

  1. To name a few, AWS (including Lambdas), C/C++, .NET (especially C#), Docker/Mesos/Marathon, Elasticsearch, frontend web (including Angular and CoffeeScript), Java, Groovy, Python (including Django and Flask), RabbitMQ, and Scala. ↩︎

  2. I love experimenting with the bleeding edge. For many years, this led me towards fringe operating systems (like BeOS). Today, I enjoy playing with less mainstream programming languages (like Haskell and Nim). ↩︎
