I wrote my first computer program when I was 6 years old on an Acorn Atom:

10 PRINT "DIRK";
20 GOTO 10;

RUN

The first bug I solved was adding a space behind my name:

L.

    10 PRINT "DIRK ";
    20 GOTO 10;

RUN

In 2001 I discovered APACHE/PHP/MYSQL and created a price comparison site for mobile phones, www.telecomvergelijker.nl, which became the largest in The Netherlands. I sold the company in 2008 because I was working in theatre fulltime (I played a student in Les Misérables) and didn't have enough time for the company.

Recently, I started programming again. Currently looking at PHP frameworks like CodeIgniter and CakePHP.
