JavaScript/Titanium Developer, Developer Evangelist, Public Speaker and Twitch Streamer

Hi! As you might’ve figured out, my name is Rene Pot. I am a JavaScript developer, mostly building mobile apps using Appcelerator Titanium. My experience in mobile app development is therefore also my most prominent presence online.

My history as a developer stretches much further than my mobile development history. I was triggered by Evert to dive into the web development world when I was just 12 (2000). I then build my first website called “Rene’s Website”. Yeah, not much creativity in that.

Ever since then I’ve developed websites using HTML & CSS, later joined by PHP when I was about 15. JavaScript only followed a couple years later. The move to mobile development was bound to happen, and so it did in 2011.

At the time I was working for a company called Tricode I build my first mobile app.

My interest in mobile apps started in 2011, when I developed my first mobile app called “ICD-10 NL” (no longer live). Shortly followed by my own app called Spoorbaan which is still updated regularly, and has recently (finally) also been released for Android.

I then moved to Roamler  and have been working there for a little over 3 years as their lead mobile developer.

Right now I work as Developer Evangelist at Axway Appcelerator helping out all those interested in Titanium, or having issues with it. But I’m also available for freelance jobs which can be done outside of office hours.

Technologies I work, or have worked, with in JavaScript include:

Appcelerator Titanium (Alloy & Classic), BackboneJS, UnderscoreJS, MomentJS, KnockoutJS, jQuery and others.
