Hi, I'm Alex Vanderbist. I'm a web-developer and tech-enthousiast writing about the same two topics. Currently living in Antwerp, Belgium and working at Spatie.

One of my favourite memories is staying up late when I was fourteen. Some friends and I were running an illegal server hosting company over Teamspeak. As I wasn't allowed to use my laptop on school nights I had built my own computer and hidden it behind my desk. Using a self-soldered VGA to S-video connector I enjoyed late-night coding sessions in 480i. Switching to a random TV channel every time I heard one of my parents outside of my room.

Now, 10 years later I'm still into the same things. I enjoy learning new things, building applications, messing with new hardware and tinkering with random electronics.
