Willem is one of those old-timers with 15+ years java experience who some years ago decided to give his software development career a new boost by switching to scala. Wishing he had done so about 10 years earlier he is still amazed at a daily basis by the expressiveness of scala and just how much fun it is to write clever code. Currently building super safe digital identities at startup Cleverbase in The Netherlands using scala and akka.
