About

Welcome to the blog of Arie van Deursen. I am a professor in software engineering and head of the Department of Software Technology at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. I am also co-founder of the spin-off companies The Software Improvement Group and Infotron.

I blog about software engineering, teaching, doing research, and perhaps more.

The blog is in between my rapid tweets as @avandeursen, and my full length research papers.

Contact me as arie.vandeursen AT tudelft.nl. My PGP public key has fingerprint 0x72D9305D3EBD52B5.
