Beleef de Sneekweek

I founded the Sneekweek App, an app for a local event, in early 2015 as a personal project to improve my product development skills. Besides building a REST API, Backend CMS, a native iOS & Android app, I learned a lot more about product development, beacons, marketing, sales and project management. More information can be found on BeleefdeSneekweek.nl (in dutch).


The very first WooCommerce iOS app based on the WooCommerce API. Manage your WooCommerce shop, view your orders and get insights in your daily and weekly turnover without any hassle. I built WooDash as a small side project in early 2014.


I'm Leander Sikma, a full stack developer living in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. When I was 17, I decided to be a whole development team in one person. That's still the engine of my passion. After those years I learned a lot, such as iOS development, Android development and Web development. But also databasemanagement, serverarchitectures, distributed applications, product development, startups and entrepeneurship. I'm aware of the fact that I'm not going to reach my end goal, because it's to broad and the technolgy is changing to fast to keep up with a human brain. Nevertheless, it shouldn't hold someone back to doing everyday the thing he loves to do: creating (new) products, whatever the platform is. You're still reading? Maybe you're also interested in some other products/apps I created or to grab a cup of coffee.
