Co-founder & Headmaster
Axel Roest has been a Mac OS engineer since 1991 and an OS X engineer since 1998. When the opportunity arose to develop software for the iPhone he took on iOS. Due to the long term influence of the graphic world, design has become a prominent aspect of each app. He enjoys working with low-level embedded computers and other electronic devices and making installations to combine both.

Jasper's career as an app developer began in 2014 during a bootcamp at The App Academy. Afterwards he worked for 1.5 years as a professional iOS developer. At The App Academy he gained teaching experience and started as an assistant-trainer and has grown into an independent trainer. Besides his work at The App Academy, he works as a freelance iOS developer and gifted actor.
Jolijn started her iOS bootcamp in May 2016. With great fun and enthusiasm she finished the bootcamp, and is now active as assistant-trainer to get new students just as excited about Swift. With a background in fashion, the transfer to coding became a nice addition to her skills. Working on projects, from concept phase to endproduct, thinking creatively and idea-visualisation are examples of where the two worlds meet.
The eSkills for Jobs 2016 high level conference is being organised in response to the mismatch between demand and supply of digital technology experts in Europe. Companies across Europe are struggling to fill their ICT-related vacancies. This is due to the shortage of skilled workers. The eSkills for Job Conference 2016 will help Europe address this mismatch.
