Hi there! I am Felienne. I am assistant professor at Delft University of Technology, where I research the application of software engineering methods to spreadsheets. On that, I wrote a number of publications and my PhD dissertation. I am regularly asked to speak about my research on conferences.

During my PhD I founded a company called Infotron, which sells a tool called PerfectXL based on techniques I developed to spot errors in spreadsheets. Me, my research and my company have gotten some media coverage over the last years.

One of my biggest passions in life is to share my enthusiasm for programming/tech with others. I teach a bunch of kids LEGO Mindstorms programming every Saturday in a local community center. Furthermore, I am in the board of Devnology, a Dutch developer community that organizes monthly meetings on all things software, from Arduinos to open source and from SmallTalk to storytelling, and I am one of the founders of the Joy of Coding conference, a one day developer conference in Rotterdam.

When I am not coding, blogging or teaching, I am probably dancing Lindy Hop with my beau Rico, out running, watching a movie or playing a (board)game.
