About me

Greetings, My name is Jeroen Claassens (a.k.a. Favna) and I manage Favware

Currently 26 years old I am a developer hailing from The Netherlands. I have been a tech enthusiast for as long as I can remember. While attending high school my first choice of optional subjects was Informatics and this quickly showed to be my calling. After I graduated from high school I had no seconds thoughts about my next step - Software Engineering at a university. The university of choice ended up being The Hague University of Applied Sciences. After 5 years attending this university I obtained my Bachelor of IT in the summer of 2019. At the time of writing I am working for CGI Inc. in The Netherlands as a Frontend Software Engineer.

In my free time I have delved into a whole slew of small projects and some of these are used very actively! Notable mentions are my Discord bot "Ribbon" built with NodeJS and a whole slew of NodeJS based libraries. Some of these libraries have their groundwork in JavaScript, however since learning TypeScript I have converted them to this language as these days I have a strong preference for TypeScript and its static type checking. I have also learned C# as I have been delving into the Unity3D Game Engine for the Game Design minor I have followed as part of my Software Engineering major.

I still have a very broad future ahead of me and I expect that CGI will help me achieve many of my dreams. That said, however, playing games has always been my biggest hobby and now that I have had a taste of creating games I really feel like it would be a perfect match for me. However, I have also grown a passion for the frontend side of software engineering which is why I feel right at home where I found my first job after graduation.
