Currently, he is a Front-End Focused Senior DevOps Engineer working on Vue.js and Node.js projects with special attention for accessibility.
Rowdy loves watching superhero movies and Formula One races and enjoys riding on his mountain bike to unwind.
He will be present at DevCon Live 2021, Web & Mobile Con, on the 4th of November, talking about the Wrecked Wide Web.
Rowdy Rabouw: I’m a 49 year old developer with 25 years of experience on the web.
Rowdy Rabouw: Watching Superhero movies and Formula One.
Going to the gym and riding my mountain bike to unwind.
Rowdy Rabouw: One day I will change the world by starting with myself.
Rowdy Rabouw: Since COVID I work from home.
I start early (at 7:00) to have 2 hours to work focussed before my teammates come online around 9:00.
Usually, I have quite some meetings until 12:00 and after lunch, I continue working on a part of our employees portal. That can be either frontend (vue.js) or backend (node.js).
Rowdy Rabouw: I love creating useful and accessible applications for people to make their life a little bit easier.
Rowdy Rabouw: Developer Experience versus User Experience.
We look too much at what stack a developer wants to work with and less at what the user really needs.
Rowdy Rabouw: Working from home improves the balance.
I have a separate nice workspace and don’t have to travel 2 hours a day.
The bonus is that I can cuddle our 5 cats any time I want. 🙂
Rowdy Rabouw: We so much rely on the web nowadays but it’s not the best experience.
WE didn’t learn from our mistakes and I will show how we can improve the web for everyone.
Rowdy Rabouw: Eat your own dog food!
