Full-stack web developer
I'm a hard working team player and I always strive for more.
For this internship, I had to manage an entire project designed for me. The project in itself was to develop a cross-platform mobile application for the company that would allow the team to order lunch. This internship taught me a lot: I arrived with zero knowledge of mobile-development and I delivered a functional product for the team within timing. I learned a lot about project lifecycle and the importance of writing test cases. I also acquired a very good understanding of the Xamarin framework.
I decided to create this company with 2 other associates. We created a few websites that sold many products. We ran the websites for a few months and managed to make some good sells. Unfortunately, we decided to part ways and to wind the company up for several reasons. I learned a lot about managing a small team and I also grew some serious skills in SEO and advertising.
My responsibility was to organize a few events in my own university. I also managed social media for my branch of UStart Belgium (UStart Alma), which was just getting started at the time.
Apart from being a developer, I enjoy taking times outdoors. During the summer in Belgium, I enjoy hiking and having a nice apero. In the winter, I'm an avid skier.
When forced indoors, I follow a number of TV shows and read a lot of (sci-fi) books. I am also an aspiring chef: I love to cook!
Finally, I'm a bit of a gamer even though I'm now just a shadow of the younger me...
