Libre and Open Source Projects
In my spare time, I'm working on several free software and open source projects.
See my github page for an up-to-date overview of all my projects.
Ascom - Software Developer
My primary goal was to create a graphical shell for all currently integrated care and cure software solutions with one unified interface to make it easy to use and easy to maintain. We had to overcome a lot of difficulties in order to create a first proof of concept.
I have helped the team to write more and better documentation and introduced a package manager to ease development and brewing virtual machine for the software developers and engineers as well as the technical service engineers.
I have had a couple of compliments from my boss and his boss for my good expertise and accomplished goals. I have left the company because I want to study computer science starting in september 2017 at the University of Amsterdam (UvA).
Xillio - Software Engineer and Labs Researcher
I rolled in the company by attending a competition organised by the same company to gather talented computer science students. I have written a collaborative, peer-to-peer, text editor by forking the VIM codebase and adding a couple of networking functionality.
I have written a working automated tool for classification of scanned documents (e.g. invoices) using machine learning implemented by an artifical neural network.
The second half of my time at Xillio, I worked on maintainence and adding small features to their migration tools and scripting IDE.
GOconnectIT - Software Engineer
My father used to work at the company and I offered to work one day a week working on a Google StreetView-like augmented reality program to show the cable and pipeline infrastructure projected on the camera preview for roadworks etc.
The proof-of-concept looked really nice, but unfortunately the project leader did not have enough time to guide me through the process and they didn't spend any time on transfer of knowledge about the project setup and technical details.
We rented an Deux Chevaux and I am picnicking with Tjaard and Hanneke
