About me

My name is Laura, I am 30 years old, I live in the Netherlands and go by she/her. I am a software engineer with over 10 years of experience in various areas of .NET development. I am passionate about writing code and I have extensive, in-depth knowledge about C# and .NET.

I don’t just want to write code; I want to write code well. I don’t shy away from fixing bugs and maintaining/upgrading legacy code, and I have pushed for unit testing, test-driven development, better coding guidelines and code reviews in the past. While inexperienced, I’m also interested in information security as well as UI/UX design.


On the internet, I go by Vivelin. I am passionate about video games[1][2], music[3][4], and I spend a lot of time with my wonderful girlfriend.

One of my recent projects is a more casual, accessible version of the Super Metroid & A Link to the Past crossover randomizer. It combines the SNES games Super Metroid and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past into a single game, and shuffles the items between both games.

My version of it makes it more casual and approachable. It is a Windows desktop app, which allows for better integration and enables features such as a built-in voice-enabled item tracker. Several community members have contributed custom sprite work as well as some features that were not accepted into the original version.
