let me introduce myself
My name is Henk Kok. I was born as the oldest son of a small entrepreneur. After het Dutch version of High School I found myself a job, not knowing what I wanted to do.
When I was 18 years old my first employer had me tested by a psychological bureau on my ability to do a job in automation. After three days of making puzzles, looking at weird pictures and several conversations, the outcome was that I have a talent for painting, but that automation would also be a possibility. That started my carreer in IT. My first employer made me work with one of the first (2nd generation) computers and from that day onwards I worked in Information Technology, ICT, IT, I/T, IS or I/S whatever you prefer.
I was engaged in many different jobs, with many different IT and management roles. I did a lot of studies next to the jobs I had. I met many interesting people with very different cultural backgrounds. I travelled a lot and used all opportunities I saw coming at me. I have a very nice career behind me. Nowadays I'm retired and I enjoy it a lot, my knowledge in IT is outdated and I enjoy myself with other activities as you can read on this site.
