Full biography

Paul is a Senior Software Engineer at Confrere, based in The Netherlands, and organiser of QueerJS, CSSClasses, and Global Diversity CFP Day. He’s passionate about welcoming everyone into tech and making the web work for everyone.

Over 10 years ago, Paul was a .NET developer, but after going to his first front-end developer conference, he fell in love with that community. Ever since then, he’s been an active member of the front-end community, volunteering at, speaking at and organizing different conferences.

Nowadays, he gives talks about ethics, diversity, and inclusivity, to help make everyone feel as welcome as he was 10 years ago.

PS. He’s unreasonably proud of his personal website.
