Today I want to share a revelation I’ve just had: there are so many talented Dutch developers out there! I just wonder why it is so. Normally, it seems to depend on the climate of people’s country; for a natural reason Sweden has got a higher percentage of web developers than Italy (this is merely an educated guess, I have no numbers to back it up).
But the Netherlands? Sure, they get their fair amount of rain (and flowers, windmills and clogs), but I see no apparent reason why skilled people seem to be concentrated there. They have, as far as I know, a pretty warm climate otherwise.
Dutch developers whose blogs I try to read frequently are:
- Peter-Paul Koch
- Peter, please make sure that the URL quirksmode.org goes to your web site as well (without the “www”).
- Anne van Kesteren
- Faruk Ates
- A fighter for XHTML.
- Well, yes, Ben isn’t in Holland right now, but he originates from there.
- Jeroen Mulder
- Jeroen, what’s up with the dead links in the navigation bar?
Yes, I know, a weird post. Just a tiny reflection I felt I should write about…
Have a nice weekend, and don’t miss my next post on Monday!
