So, do you want to improve your websites search box results? Then join me during my talk and together we make it happen.
Bio van Jettro Coenradie
Jettro Coenradie is a Fellow at Luminis Amsterdam. He has been delivering applications for over 15 years. In these years Jettro has learned the importance of a close connection between development and operations. Therefore he is a strong believer in the devops movement. One type of handover from development to operations is documentation, but the best one is good logs. Jettro likes to try out new stuff. That is why he recently got his motorcycle drivers license. On a motor bike you tend to explore different routes to get the best our of your bike and have fun while doing the thing you need to do, get from A to B. When exploring new technologies he also likes to explore new routes to find better and more interesting ways to accomplish his goal. Jettro rides an all terrain bike, he does not like riding the same ground over and over again. The same is valid for his technical interest, he knows about backend (elasticsearch, mongodb, spring data, spring integration) as well as front-end (AngularJS, Sass, Less) and mobile development (iOS, Sencha touch).
