After years of experience with Object Oriented Software Development with UML, several development processes and project approaches as developer, trainer and project leader, Rob worked on his first XP project in 2000. And with great success! He supports projects and people in the application of agile practices, principles and values since then. Rob develops himself and others continuously by visiting, organising and hosting workshops at conferences and user group meetings like SPA, XP Days, XP-NL and Agile Open.

Rob explains hard problems in a simple way, so the problems and the solutions are easy to fathom. He is able to let others experience what he learned quickly, and so doing guides teams around pitfalls. His enthusiasm and sense of humour makes it a great pleasure to work with Rob.
