My first encounter with Pieter work was 2011, I read the zeromq guide,
for the first time, I finished the book that night without going to
I remember I thought that it change everything I knew about
distributed systems, it was the best paper I read about software, and
still is.

Later Pieter become my mentor, I remember reading code that he wrote
as part of CZMQ and it was so simple, I thought to myself that I want
to learn to write code as simple as Pieter can do.
He always challenged me, his way of thinking was different, always surprising.
I visited Pieter exactly 4 month ago, during the last ZeroMQ
hackathon, he of course challenged me then as well.

I will miss him very much, I already miss him,  so sad, we lost a
great leader today and a good friend.

Rest in peace Pieter.
