I'm Theo van der Sluijs

Software development manager / CTO

I'am Theo van der Sluijs

Theo van der Sluijs

My name is Theo van der Sluijs, I was born in Rotterdam on a Wednesday. Currently I live in Wolphaartsdijk, a small town in the province of Zeeland (The Netherlands).

During workdays I´m a Software Development Manager at Bax-shop.nl and at home a Husband and Father of two Sons. I Love : Technology, Gadgets, WoW, Traveling, Skiing, Reading, Developing, Photography and playing with my kids.

Next to work I am the leader of my sons football team (F1 v.v. Wolfaartsdijk) and I'm the treasurer of the Dutch Sinterklaas Committee of the village I live in (Wolphaartsdijk).

If you are interested, please visit one of my websites (theovandersluijs.nl or iTheo.nl), find me on twitter or contact me by e-mail.

Why this page?

I actually build three websites just to show you who I am. There's this page, theovandersluijs.nl and itheo.nl. The three pages each show a different part of me. When you combine them you got a pretty good few about who I'am!

The pages combine all sorts of techniques to get the data on the right place. All three sites have one PHP code. They display different information because of the domain name. The information you see is cached by Zend caching and most of the information is gotten bij API's

API's I use are from Goodreads, Linkedin and Instagram. In the next versions I want to add the API's for Spotify, IMDB and Lanyrd

Yes... these pages are a bit of a showoff and it's just fun for me to to get the most out of my DigitalOcean server

It's not perfect yet... but I'm getting there!

Recommendations

Theo is een fijne manager om mee te werken, hard werkend, flexibel & technish goed onderlegd. Hij weet zijn team(s) goed te motiveren, en doorziet snel eventuele problemen. Ik heb 11 maanden met hem gewerkt, en heb hem geen dag niet zien lachen, hoe druk hij het ook heeft.

Thomas Lang (FORMER COLLEAGUE)

Theo is an extremely motivated developer. Mastering Adobe Flex, Interactive Forms and ABAP in a few months has shown him to be a great analytical mind. Next to his technical knowledge, Theo is really focused on creating a good user-friendly and good looking interface for his clients. Working with Theo was an honor and a pleasure!

Mark Huisman (FORMER COLLEAGUE)

I worked with Theo in the same group and appreciated his enthusiasm, energy, focus and humor while working with him. A good good guy to have in your team.

Bas Heikens (FORMER COLLEAGUE)

Theo is a friendly and hard working colleague. He has knowledge of a lot of different programming tools. He is also a very enterprising person.

Hein Stolle (FORMER COLLEAGUE)

In het afgelopen jaar dat ik bij Bax-shop.nl heb samen mogen werken met Theo heb ik hem leren kennen als een hardwerkende, open, humoristische people manager met een zeer solide technische achtergrond. Hij denkt goed mee met de organisatie en zijn team en kan dat vertalen naar de juiste acties. Samen hebben we veel structurele verbeteringen kunnen doorvoeren in de IT afdeling en met name in de processen bij de software ontwikkelaars. Ik hoop in de toekomst nog vaker met hem te kunnen samenwerken.

Zoran Birač (FORMER COLLEAGUE)

I worked with Theo for the last year. I got to know him as a hands on manager, who is professional and goal-oriented. Working in a dynamic environment, he was good at driving and adapting to the changes required to grow business and his team.
