Hi visitor!

My name is Niels Martignène, and I've been a programmer for over twenty years. It all began when I stumbled upon an old Amstrad CPC-6128 in my parents' attic, and found out you could use BASIC to program simple games on it.

Nowadays I work on various C++ applications/libraries, and some web applications. I also do some C and assembly programming. You can find information about some of the open-source projects I've worked on over the years on this website.

I'm available for hire, please contact me on if you are interested.
