Hi! Welcome to my blog and thank you for your interest.
My name is Rémon (Ray) Sinnema, a software architect from the Netherlands. I’m married to an amazing American woman and have two beautiful sons.
I try to be the best I can at what I do. This blog helps me with that in that it allows me to reflect on what’s going on in my work. Other tools in my continuous improvement tool box are reading books and practicing.
The theme of this blog is discovering the best way to develop software. I write about software development in general, with an emphasis on cloud computing, security, and software craftsmanship.

I have developed software professionally for over twenty years.
I started out working on different projects, but quickly switched to products and never looked back. I discovered eXtreme Programming in 2003 and have been using Agile practices ever since, lately morphing into DevOps.
In 2010, I joined the OASIS Technical Committee that defines the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) standard. Since then, I’ve been focusing more and more on security. I’m the development Security Champion for the cloud platform I currently work on. I also have a strong interest in REST.
