DDD Europe 2023 - Simone de Gijt

Simone de Gijt


Simone is a 30 year old scuba dive fanatic, who loves to dance, sing and go on adventures. She lives in Amsterdam and is currently working for OpenValue Amsterdam, for who she's a Java and Kotlin software developer consultant.

In her own time she volunteers as an educator on high schools about gender diversity and sexuality. Her passion, next to programming, is to make the world a little kinder.

She loves to be in a group, mingle, collaborate, talk and explain. But she wouldn’t want to work without the excitement and satisfaction she feels when developing a new feature. She's defined by the combination: social but nerdy!
