My name is Klaas van Gend, I work as FAE for Vector Fabrics, whose tool Pareon can take regular C or C++ code to find parallelization opportunities and will even tell you how to change your code to reach the predicted speed gains. I also teach courses on multicore programming in C/C++

As a hobby, I develop an open source physics computer game called The Butterfly Effect.

I also have a hobby in glider piloting, flying with the Eindhovense Aeroclub/Koninklijke Luchtmacht zweefvliegcombinatie.
