My name is Tobias Sijtsma. I am a passionate developer with a broad interest in technology. For nearly my entire life, I have been devoted to discovering new technologies and building applications in dozens of different ways. I enjoy working on software for various platforms. I am a quick learner and can easily think outside of the box. I have experience with working in a SCRUM software development team and know my way around front-end and back-end web technologies, as well as standalone applications.
