So a bit more about the person behind this operation.
My name is Peter van Westen, I'm 37 years old. I'm married to Daniëlle. Our daughter Marissa is currently 9 years old.
I'm Dutch and live in a green and quiet part of The Netherlands, close to the German border.
My passions in life are: my family, music, and developing excellent extensions to make your Joomla-life better.
But first and foremost my passion in life is serving God.
How it all started
Back in 2005 I started making a website on Joomla (still Mambo back then). Later I got a job working for a Christian organization which developed websites to try to reach people with the Good News online, working with Joomla.
I'm always thinking about ways to improve processes and functionality and add features that are missing, which lead to my first Joomla extensions.
First I offered my extensions for free and gave people the opportunity to donate to support my work (developing extensions and providing support). It was amazing that people actually supported me, which gave me the opportunity to keep working on my extensions.
But the time I needed to invest in my extensions and support was in conflict with my paid job. In 2010 I decided to focus completely on my own business - Regular Labs. To be able to keep working on my extensions I had to change my business model a bit. Since then I offer free versions of my extensions and paid pro versions which offer more functionality. On both versions I try to offer an excellent standard of support – still with the aim to make my and your Joomla life better.
I consider myself to be very lucky to be able to do something I love doing, and earning a living doing so. More than that: I consider myself blessed. I'm grateful for the opportunities God is giving and I'm thankful. Ultimately, I live for God, knowing He sustains my life. My life has a goal and meaning, knowing my road leads to Him through Jesus Christ. This gives me peace and joy and a deep sense of fulfilment.
I strive for excellence in what I do, because I believe we should use the gifts God has given us to the best of our abilities. I hope you will benefit of that, using Regular Labs extensions.
