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.

At Floorplanner we are making space planning and interior design accessible to everybody. We are working hard to make it as easy as possible to create professional looking 2D floor plans, gorgeous looking 3D floor plans, photorealistic interior renderings and interactive VR panoramas and walk-throughs.

But while we are building all these new things we tend to ‘forget’ to write stuff down. Stuff like how we built a certain app and why we did it this way, but also how all our different apps work together. And although it’s important to write down all these technical things, we don’t do it enough. That’s why we are going to try a different approach and see if we can find someone who can help us with this.

So, if you like what we are doing at Floorplanner, you can write and want to write about software, consider joining us as a tech writer. For more info, please send me a message!
