Stefan Klokgieters

I'm Stefan Klokgieters and am Software Development Manager at Studyportals where I'm helping to build the best study choice platforms possible!

My main responsibilities are to improve the Studyportals products by setting a technical strategy and in particular by guiding the engineers in creating high-quality software, delivered in a timely yet realistic manner. People are always my number one priority, only with a group of motivated and happy people, we can make miracles happen! Something which easily can get forgotten.

In my spare time I watch a lot of movies and series, especially sci-fi and action-adventure. But off course the occasional sitcom is also highly appreciated. Furthermore, I love to cook and sometimes experiment while doing so.

Since being a developer is a sitting profession I try to get enough exercise during my weekly kickbox trainings. A healthy body equals a healthy mind, something that we often tend to forget.

Mobile First

Creating awesome mobile first experiences is what a really stand for. When you talk about responsive design people often only think about the lay-out aspect but it's much more. In particular, the differences in user behavior, progressive web app support and page performance.

Performance Optimization

Like most of you know, a well thought and slick looking website doesn't necessarily "perform" well. Page speed is just as important as having a nice looking website which facilitates a good user experience. Therefore, I am focusing a lot at Studyportals on our overall page performance, something I really enjoy!
