I have an announcement to make, and the title of this post mostly covers what I want to say. But most people will read that title and be confused about a thing or two, so here is a little backstory.
Computertaal is a technology blog that is more than a one and a half decade old. It has been an independant source of IT tips, tricks and articles ever since.
I joined the writer staff of the blog immediately when the blog was founded. I would hesitate to call myself a co-founder because the blog has always been the brain child of Peter D’Hollander, the main guy behind the blog that has kept the lights on for over more than a decade and whom is responsible for a large chunk of the 15,000 articles that you can currently find on the blog in Dutch.
About eight years ago, I took a “brief hiatus” from writing for Computertaal because I wanted to focus on writing about Joomla, a popular CMS. That was all I wrote a bout for a while, and people will tell you not to regret things from the past but I wish I would have found a better balance back then.
Anyhow, fast forward to 2020 (and skip a period where I didn’t write about anything for a long time because reasons) and I felt the urge to start covering broader tech topics again. Instead of starting a seven millionth website which I would never finished, I decided to see if there was a possibility to go back to my roots.
I’m happy to announce that there was still a spot available for a smart-ass like me who loves to write about everything tech related under the sun. So in 2020 I’ll be returning to Computertaal as a writer and start terrorizing the Dutch tech community again with my blog posts. You have been warned.
