About Me


My name is Tom Hombergs. I'm a software developer, consultant, architect, coach ... . Whatever the role, I'm focused on getting the software ready for production.

For more than a decade, I've been involved in developing software for many different clients across almost as many different industries, always with a focus on the Java and Spring ecosystem.

I found that writing about a topic with the intention to actually let other people read it is the best way to learn. This blog is my way of diving deep into topics that I have stumbled over in my projects or which I just wanted to learn about.

If you're interested in working with me or have any feedback about my writing, don't hesitate to contact me.
