IkMy name is Zef Hemel. I’m Dutch, yet I live in Poznań, Poland and generally work remotely.

I went to school for a while (B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Groningen, M.Sc. from Trinity College DublinPh.D from Delft University of Technology), then I worked for Cloud9 IDE and architected their language analysis infrastructure, and later became VP of Engineering. Currently I work part-time at LogicBlox as a developer advocate and product manager. For the rest of the time I work on Zed, my code editor project. I also write about HTML5 and JavaScript on InfoQ.

I’ve spoken on a number of conferences. Some recent ones:

I’m a tool builder, whether it’s IDEs, code editors, libraries or otherwise — making people more productive using my tools is what drives me.
