Thank you for taking the time to check out my website. Here I will try to give you some more information about myself and the projects that I work on in my free time.



About Me

I am a full-stack developer (for some reason full-stack developers are called Unicorns...) from the Netherlands and started programming when I was 12 years old. The first programming language I learned was Visual Basic. I have always loved bringing my thoughts and ideas to the computer screen.

After finishing high school I knew that I wanted to make my living by programming. So I choose an "Application Development" study. When I completed my internship, I started working full-time making websites and web applications. The language I was writing in at the time was ASP Classic.

ASP Classic; however, was quickly overshadowed by PHP and I decided to switch to that programming language instead. In the beginning I was making my own "mini frameworks" for projects I was working on, but quickly switched to CodeIgniter.

Luckily, after a few months, I discovered a framework called Laravel. And up until this day I still use Laravel as my PHP framework of choice. It just gives you so much features out of the box, it becomes trivial to quickly set up a proof-of-concept. And is also powerful and flexible enough to transform that proof-of-concept in a future-proof, stable and secure application.
