About Me

A photo of Yorick

I'm a software developer from The Netherlands, with over a decade of software development experience. I'm the author of and work full-time on the Inko programming language. Please consider supporting my work by donating using GitHub Sponsors. Before working on Inko, I worked as a Staff Backend Engineer at GitLab. For more details, refer to my resume.

You can find me on GitLab, GitHub, Twitter, Reddit and lobste.rs. If you wish to contact me through Email, my Email address is yorick at this domain name. I'm not interested in unsolicited Emails from recruiters, and mark such Emails as spam.

I sign my Git commits using these SSH public keys. In the past I used this GPG key for signing Git commits, but the key is no longer in use.
