My name is Frans. I was born in winter, grew up in the Netherlands, and have been living in Belgium for quite a few years now. My interests include languages and coding.
My master’s thesis analyzed the best practices regarding digital editions, the results of which I applied to create a digital edition of the Vierde Martijn. I am also one of the maintainers of KOReader, a document viewer that supports PDF, DjVu, CBT, CBZ, EPUB, FB2 and many more file formats.
My Github profile will give you a reasonable overview of my spare-time coding projects.
You can send an email to
