Hi there and welcome,


My name is Toine. I work as a software tester for a test consultancy firm called Polteq.

Up-to-date information on my work and consultancy jobs is available on my LinkedIN.

For my work as a software tester I am studying hard to advance in the more technical aspects of the field. I find that fun, enjoyable and also very challenging. I can honestly say that learning these new skills is now my number one hobby. Many hours per week after work and sometimes even a bit on the weekends, you can find me sitting behind my computer, studying Java, Python, JavaScript, Selenium, API’s, jMeter, architecture and more. Besides that I also spend a fair amount of time every day driving to and from work during which I often listen to software testing, quality and security related podcasts. Looking at all of this it is safe to say I am very passionate about my work as a software tester.

In the first place I want to share my enthusiasm about all the things I learn about. At the same time, maybe you get something out of it like a nice new resource for learning something new.

Of course there is more to life than work. I live in the Netherlands together with my wonderful girlfriend and our daughter and son. They motivate and inspire to always be my best self.

Life is ridiculously busy and fun with family and work. If I get the chance I love being out by/on/in the water. Currently I do not own a boat but there will be one again in the future, sailing dinghy or a motorboat, still undecided on that.


Thank you
