Who is Myriadbits?

I am a Dutch programmer that has been developing code since I was a teenager. Started programming on an Atari 800XL, without any hard-drive and/or floppy drives (a floppy is a kind on USB-stick for those that do not know). Every time I switched off the computer, all my code was gone…

I learned a lot of other languages since then, Pascal, Assembler, C, C++, C# etc., etc. I have been programming code for embedded software, from DSP’s to the simple stuff, middle-ware, servers, clients and all kind of GUI’s. Different databases and multiple operating systems in all kind of businesses. You might call me quite a broad developer.

I am currently employed at a large global company that creates solutions for the broadcasting industries. Developing software in the mother of all languages C and C++.

During my programming years I developed a number of useful tools and libraries in my spare time. This site  is my first attempt to share some of my code with others. Some code might be useful to others.

Enjoy!

Why the name Myriadbits? Mostly because it was one of the few names I could find that was still available. But on the other side, I programmed myriad and myriad bits…. (I think I easily program a myriad bits a day, even in C++) and of course: It sounds good.
