Midas Kwant

I'm a 19 year old Dutch student from Haarlem, the Netherlands. I live at Stanford in Palo Alto and I'm interested in software development and design, classics and skateboarding.

The impact I could have using the right tools is what I realized when I launched my first app back when I was 12 years old. In addition to that, I understood that working together with other people is really fun. The first apps (AppWall, PhotoWall, Inside iOS 5, App Match, Social Match, Guide for iOS 7) I built were not 'world changing' at all, those projects are the ones that taught me a lot though and have opened the doors to the world of technology entrepreneurship. Over the years I have developed design skills (Sketch and Framer.js), but also skills in Objective -C, C++, Java, HTML, MySQL, PHP and a little bit of Swift. My first real internship was at Adyen (adyen.com) where I helped automating their recruiting process by building an in-house tool which helps them find, match and hire the right people for the right jobs.

I'm studying Symbolic Systems (Human Computer Interaction) at Stanford University and am a Sophomore right now. My study, little (or big!) projects and having a good time with my friends is what I'm focussing on now.
