I am Martijn. Once upon a time I followed an online lesson in HTML on my grandfather’s computer. Then I built websites on MSN Groups (R.I.P.) and GeoCities (R.I.P.). From March 2016 to March 2017, I was working professionally with PHP in the Netherlands. Besides that I work mostly with front-end technologies in my spare time.
Very interested in tools for a multilingual web. I speak Dutch (
en-GB), and Swedish (
sv-SE) fluently. I have a good understanding of German (
de-DE) as well.
You can link to this page using
My personal website.

The domain name
vanderven.se was first registered in 2006 to bring all of the family’s email under a single provider. Since 2008 information about me has been available on
vanderven.se/martijn/. (Though I had a short-lived fling with
martijn.vanderven.se as well.)
The content of
vanderven.se/martijn/ has not changed since early 2014, only the presentation has.
