Bouke van der Bijl


Hi, my name is Bouke van der Bijl. I’m a programmer and endlessly curious about the world. On this website I sometimes post about things I’m doing or something that’s on my mind.


My job is Tech Lead at Cheddar Payments. I wear all kinds of hats but I mostly program in Go, which is the language I’m most experienced with.

In the past I worked at Shopify and DigitalOcean.


I really enjoy reading and keep track of everything I’m reading, if you have any book suggestions then please send them my way.

These are the categories of books I especially enjoy:


I have three apps on the iOS App Store:

I created a spaced repetition bot for Telegram, which I blogged about as well.
