Hi. I’m Lindsey Broos

I’m a .NET Consultant at Team4Talent in Belgium, a Pluralsight author , content crew at Techorama Belgium and the Netherlands , board member of Visug and owner of B&B ’t Kloosterveld .

I live in Boutersem with my husband, mother-in-law and our 2 dogs, where we run our B&B.

Career path

After graduating as a Clinical Lab Technician in 2008, I got my first job as a lab technician at the University of Leuven where I did research on Microbial Genetics. After a year, I switched jobs and became a lab technician in a phytopathology laboratory where I worked for 9 years. But an insatiable hunger for challenge and growth propelled me towards a new horizon.

One of my passions is photography. When my husband and two friends started with a new tech conference Techorama in Belgium in 2014 and didn’t have much budget, I decided to do the photography so they could save some money on this. As I look back on this, it was one of my best decisions. As the photographer, I jumped into every session and I started to follow a few parts of sessions. To my surprise, I found it very interesting. After the conference, I wanted to learn how to program. I started doing some tutorials and tried to learn C# and then I decided to go back to school.

In September 2016, I started a 3-year program in the evening. Those 3 years were hard due to the combination of my full-time job, going to school in the evening, the tasks I got at school and a household. But I succeeded and graduated summa cum laude in June 2019. I don’t know if I could have done this without the support and encouragement of my husband.

After 2 years, I was ready to make the switch and exchange my white lab coat for a laptop. And that’s something I still haven’t regretted it for a single day.

Community engagement

I had the privilege to be involved with the organization of Techorama Belgium and the Netherlands from the very start. Techorama is a yearly international technology conference where we welcome 1800 attendees in Belgium and 1200 in the Netherlands. Our commitment is to create a unique conference experience with quality content and the best speaker line-up.

Since the summer of 2019, I’m also a board member of VISUG, the Belgian Visual Studio User Group. We try to organize one evening event per month and one larger event, Visug XL, per year.
