I'm a generalist software developer with experience ranging from B2B Message Integration (4 years of EDI) to hardware programming with C (a bit over a year of Atmel AVR) and Web App Development in a team of 20 people (1 year of Java EE and Agile) to Full-Stack web development (15+ years of HTML, CSS, MySQL and PHP, and of course various JavaScript implementations including jQuery and AngularJS). And all sorts of various other languages here and there, such as shell scripts in Unix, small games with Python and C#, and lots of online courses on all kinds of languages (Code Abbey, Codecademy, Project Euler, etc).

At the moment I am working with Python 3 and Java, and choosing between ReactJS and AngularJS for a framework to use in a brand new thingy (html5 + bootstrap). All while running on a Vagrant setup and Git.

I always enjoy working on something and learning new things, so I often read books about software development and project management. Lately I've been re-reading Uncle Bob's Clean Code to see if anything new pops up after some more experience under the belt.

My favourite results so far have been:

  • A working hardware controller (Atmel AVR 8-bit MCU) for automated Scalextric race car driving on a course with sensors for lap times
  • The frequently updated website for my band, where I use the latest technologies I've learned. The latest version will use AngularJS with HTML5 and CSS3 with a back-end done in PHP 5 as a RESTful API.
  • The several mini-games I have done on various languages. It's always fun to compare how similar programs are so different in various languages. Python and C# have been the most pleasurable so far.

One of my future targets is to do some more electronics tinkering with C. The goal is to create a quite literal drum machine, which will use an Arduino-controller actuator to swing a drumstick at the general direction of the drum. Preferrably with full MIDI control.
