Hi. I'm Sander

If you've come here you're probably really motivated to know more about me.

Well, read on then - it'll be over in a jiffy.


Despite appearances, I'm not a software engineer. I started out as one, but discovered other work can be just as rewarding1). Currently I earn my bread in roles like analyst and product owner.

Side projects

Writing software is still fun, though, so I do that in my spare time.

Text based modeling software, like MscGen (sequence charts) and Graphviz (networks) is awesome. Tooling to work with that software is either non-existant or klunky. I'm on a mission to change that:

Randomly, I scratched an itch and wrote a thing to chart and police dependencies in TypeScript2) projects. Apparently I wasn't the only one having it; dependency-cruiser has been download over 14 million times in 20233).

GitHub is doing a decent job on showcasing my other side projects, so if you want to see them, hit over there.

Private life

I live in Holland. As does my girlfriend. Probably - I honestly don't know. I have never met her.

To the best of my knowledge I don't have any kids either.

Social media

Apart from GitHub, I have accounts on Mastodon and on LinkedIn (both checked at irregular intervals).

Made with in Holland.
