Hi, I’m Ben Verbeken, an agile software developer living in Tienen (Belgium, Europe). I spend most of my professional time writing web apps in Java using the usual spring and hibernate stack.
In my spare time, I prefer being a PlayFramework addict, only the best thing since sliced bread.
Together with Steve Chaloner I’m a co-founder of the Belgian Playframework User Group or #playbe for short.
Things I like
- simplicity above all
- the freedom of being a freelancer
- Brahms, Mendelssohn, Schubert
- DRY and YAGNI
- the agile manifesto
- my objects to be statically typed
- cool beer
Things I dislike, hate even
- code comments
- office politics
- lasagna and spaghetti
