Hi! I'm Rick Kuilman, a software developer from The Netherlands. Growing up in country side with fresh air, plenty of space and loads of free time I was hooked when introduced into the world of computer stuff.
After playing Tomb Raider II for (probably) an eternity as a child, I looked up how to make my own game. And so I did, with RPG Maker XP. While rounding up my first game I wanted to make a neat little website with a manual to go along with it using Wordpress.com.
It was after I got the Dutch famous books "PHP in 10 minuten" and "CSS in 10 minuten" for my tenth birthday that I realized how awesome building real websites actually is. Ever since I am developing websites and webapplications.
