About me

My name is Hidde de Vries. I work in Sanity's developer relations team. Previously, I worked as a front-end developer and accessibility specialist, with (previous) clients including the Dutch government, W3C and Mozilla.

In my work, I focus on the parts of website technology that end users see and interact with. Accessibility, performance and user privacy are key to me.

Front-end code should not just be good for users, it should also works well across organisations. So excellent documentation, good commit messages and maintainable code are also super important to me.


I started out studying Artificial Intelligence, but ended up getting a bachelor and master’s degree in Philosophy. How it relates to front-end work? Abstractions!
