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.

Poland 2021

Visiting Energylandia in Poland


Greece 2021

With Athens turning "yellow", meaning we can travel there, but with caution, it was time to pack the bags and get on a plane for the first time in a year.

Germany 2020

With travel restrictions still in full effect, it was time to think outside of the box. We could still travel to Germany and there happen to be a lot of great themeparks there...
