Portrait of Auke de Jong

About me

Hi there, my name is Auke de Jong! I'm a 29-year-old originally from the Netherlands, but currently living in the Columbus area of Ohio, USA.

As a developer, I work primarily with Laravel, a powerful and flexible PHP framework. I'm passionate about creating high-quality, efficient code that solves complex problems and meets the needs of my clients.

But I'm not just a developer - I'm also a lifelong learner. I'm actively engaged in discovering new things, and I believe that web development is a never-ending maze of new things to learn and explore. I'm always seeking out new challenges and opportunities to expand my skills and knowledge, and I enjoy sharing my passion for learning with others.

In my free time, I enjoy engaging in hobbies and interests that bring me joy and fulfillment. These include technology, gaming, traveling, and photography. I believe that pursuing hobbies and interests is an important way to stay balanced, creative, and happy.

Thanks for getting to know me a little better, and I look forward to connecting with you!
