Gert-Jan van der Wel

Hey! My name is Gert-Jan van der Wel. I'm 41 years old, Dutch, married and have three little kids. I co-founded Floorplanner and I'm currently transitioning from running the technology dept to the sales dept. In between family and work, I like to ride my road bike whenever I can.

Here I share what I'm up to and working on at the moment. I aim to update it every few weeks. If you want me to send you an email whenever I wrote something new, you can sign up here.

Dashboard MVP

work - 30 Apr 2018

We are almost at the end of our journey of rebuilding a big part of our platform. In March we released our new editor and we introduced the new camera feature. The next important piece of the puzzle is a project we call the Dashboard. It’s the logged-in part of the Floorplanner website and we are also rebuilding this part from scratch. We will introduce some new highly anticipated features and it will give us the opportunity to use the latest tech; in our case a React.js frontend talking to a Ruby on Rails backend. We’ll soon open it up for early access.
