I made a website for Fietstrade where students could buy and sell bicycles. This was my first real rails app. The students running the site in the end had to focus more on their study, and there didn't seem to be enough interest generated in the site.
Dayleez was a site that offered very affordable meals at restaurants in Rotterdam. We had a nice run, but in the end it didn't take off.
After Dayleez and Fietstrade another entrepreneurial student contacted me to make his idea a reality. Studyrent offered a great selection of rooms for rent to a primarily international market of students. Studyrent is still active today (though no longer on my code base and design)
The Erasmus Recruitment Days is an on campus recruitment event where 1000+ students come into contact with 100+ companies. Collecting assets like logos and event descriptions is part of managing this process. I created a rails application for the ERD to help them collect information from participating companies.
At Memocom my first official project was to work on the rewrite of CiEP Online, an E-Learning portal.
Launchpad represents Memocom's infrastructure of VPSes, and the automation and monitoring around it. At first the focus lied in the architecture of the infrastructure, now it lies in exposing relevant information to the rest of the business and making these capabiltiies accessible to the rest of the company.
At Giant Swarm I focus on implementing great and usable ways for our users to visualise and interact with Giant Swarm's product: A managed kubernetes cluster.
Through a contact at Ponder Design I started working part time at Memocom. Eventually this became full time. At Memocom I develop in Ruby and maintain the VPS infrastructure.
I took a try at running my own business and created websites for small to medium sized companies. From here came Dayleez, Fietstrade, workships.nl, studyrent, and other sites. I wasn't very good at the administrative and commercial parts of the business and decided to stop.
Sitting in the lecture rooms didn't match my self-taught learning style. I stopped my study and focused on programming professionally.
I worked together in a team with 7 other capable students. I was responsible for the promotion of and placement of the association. I was also responsible for integration of EFR’s online presence with it’s CRM backend.
Got my first job at the Coolblue helpdesk. Helping callers with questions and purchases for popular online shops (pdashop.nl, laptopshop.nl, mp3shop.nl etc)
Having finished my high school at the British School of Rio de Janeiro, I decided to go for higher education in the Netherlands
