Hanno Embregts is a Java Developer, Speaker and Teacher at Info Support (the Netherlands). He has over 10 years experience with both front- and back-end development, with a special interest in automating the software development process to the fullest. He likes his work best when it is fast-paced and versatile, which is why he juggles Java development, public speaking and teaching courses at Info Support’s Knowledge Centre.
