Nieko Maatjes 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, my wife and I like traveling a lot. We used to live in Moscow (and I even got Russian citizenship), and later in Prague. I wrote about our time living there a lot on my blog, but there I now mainly focus on our travels.

Whenever I have some spare time, I like working on small side projects.

You can contact me in one of several ways:
