Tars Joris

Scrum Master & Team Lead

In high school, I began to develop a strong interest in computer science. I started off with a ditched IBM PC/XT, which an aunt dug up from here office’s basement. I began coding in Turbo Pascal on a monochrome display. After a year we got a basic programming training in school, where I got bad grades because I didn’t stick to the assignments.

Growing up in a family of musicians, I always thought I’d go to the conservatory and become a professional musician. I didn’t and instead I got a master’s degree in computer science at the University of Antwerp. I was glad that I finally got some answers. All along, I kept studying music and it’s another real passion. I’m playing the drums for as long as I can remember and I still perform with several bands. In 2005, I started at Inventive Designers as a developer, and since 2008, I’m managing the development team. It’s great to work in a company with a lot of expertise and a common sense of doing things right.

Working with new technologies every day keeps us from seeking comfort in what we already know.
