Hello, and welcome to my website! My name is Nieko Maatjes.
I'm a programmer, who works at Yandex on Yandex.News, and at Paragin on educational software. I'm Dutch, a bit Russian :), and live in Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
Besides programming, tinkering, exact sciences etc., I enjoy sporting (running, fitness, cycling, speed skating, frisbee, skiing), baking and juggling, a.o. :)
Also, I like traveling a lot. I used to live in Moscow (and even got Russian citizenship), and later in Prague. I wrote about my time living there a lot on my blog, but there I now mainly focus on my travels.
Whenever I had some spare time, I liked working on small side projects.
