Hello! Hallo! ¡Hola! Olá! Salut! Ciao! Saluton! Привет! 大家好！ السلام عليكم
My name is Maarten van Gompel, also known as proycon on the internet. Welcome to my homepage where I share some of my work and interests. I live in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, with my boyfriend Hans and our dog Jaiko. I have a great passion for languages and technology, and especially those areas where they meet!
I work as a research software engineer (just a fancy word for computer programmer) in the field of Natural Language Processing. I'm a unix enthusiast committed to open-source software and an advocate for more security, simplicity, privacy and decentralisation. I love learning languages, coding, reading (mostly science fiction), working on my home automation system, playing the piano, and walking our dog.
