Henk von Pickartz started in 1985 with computers and programming on a 80286 using the few tools available at the time. He is mostly self taught, because “back in those days” there were no diplomas or degrees in computer science. He has used all kinds of languages since, from hardcore assembly to more user friendly Pascal, Delphi and later php. In his free time he prefers to take pictures of nature, culture and wildlife, wherever he finds himself in the world. Currently he works for a Business Building company in Canada, where he is the main developer of new products and ideas.
