Hi there! My name is Robert Beekman, developer, photographer and longboarder.

I love creating scalable webapplications, created pragmatically, with both "boring" and new technologies, whatever is best suited for the job. I made the first commit to AppSignal, where I'm still happily employed. In my free time I like to travel, mainly to Asia and when I'm not abroad I regularly take my longboard out for a spin.
