A 26-year old developer from Groenlo, The Netherlands. By day I work as a Full-Stack Developer at a local agency, IdeeMedia. By night I spend most of my time working on open source projects and finding/trying out what's new in tech.
My most recent project is Meteocons, a free to use set of animated weather icons. Another one of my recent projects is latte-ui, an UI library built for React, you can use it for free in your own projects.
I started experimenting with code back in 2008, I tweaked a lot to existing projects from other people to see what happened when I changed something. Since then I gained a lot of experience and developed my own (code) style. In 2013 I won two gold medals for programming.
For programming I primarily use the tools of JetBrains, such as PhpStorm and IntelliJ Idea, those applications are a perfect fit for me. All of my projects are stored on their own GitHub repository and I host everything on my own Debian-based server. I also have another beefy Debian-based server for private projects and tools.
At IdeeMedia my primary job is to transform Photoshop files in actual working websites or apps. For websites I created a base framework around WordPress and for our apps I use Flutter. At IdeeMedia I also create what I'd like to call "Portals", these are intranet-like dashboads for custom features.
Programming languages, frameworks and more that I've worked with.
A few things that I've done to gain work experience in my field.
In 2020 I started my own company. I got more and more questions about making small websites for acquaintances or collaborating on projects with others. With my company I am not actively looking for new customers, but if someone knocks on the door for a website, app or simple design, I am always happy to help.
Senior Developer — SoonTM
Full-Stack Developer — My career as a developer really started at IdeeMedia. I work on a lot of projects here. From small websites for local companies to large order systems for the Marveld holiday park in Groenlo. I also did some server management here and made sure everything ran smoothly online.
Internship — During the period that I went to school at Graafschap College, I did an internship at IMTheSolution. Here I learned to work with Xamarin, among other things, and I found out that mobile app development does interest me, but not with Xamarin.
It was a bit rough, but eventually I've managed to successfully get my degree!
Application developer — After a two year gap I was still motivated to get my degree, so I decided to restart my education at Deltion College. All the effort I put into the education was worth it because I managed to get my degree!
Application developer — I wanted to explore this interest in programming even more. I already had some self knowledge of programming which made the education really easy for me, maybe even a bit too easy… It was also the reason why I quit school for a few years.
Commerce & administration — My interest in computers has already been there since I was a kid. I even hacked the schools wifi once. It was very easy for me to choose the subject "Commerce & administration" in middle school. I got to learn a bit about administration.
