Like the title says, I live for music and webdevelopment! It's where my two passions collide. Ofcourse I'm always available for non-music related projects, it's just more fun when music is involved!
While coding I always keep the end-user in mind, as well as performance. I'm not a desinger, but I do have a keen eye for good design an bad user-experience.
I love webstandards! I'm even a member of the W3C Music Notation Community Group, developing and maintaining standards for MusicXML.
My passion for music is mainly driven by being a guitar player. On a lazy sunday I also like to go out and take some pretty pictures.
Inspite of what the title says I was taught both design and webdevelopment. I even chose webapplication development as my main focus.
This was the hardcore business oriented IT. Mainly complex database management and networking solutions. It wasn't my big interest so I switched to a more creative approach to IT.
This is where they taught me to be a genuinely nice guy.

Unfortunately, I can't show all of my projects because some of them took place under a non-disclosure agreement

Originally designed and developed by Design Skills, I maintained and updated this wordpress website. The biggest challenge here was countering the many security en performance issues that this site faced. Besides updating and bugfixing the website I had to maintain the AWS server instance as well. Luckily I'm very familiar with AWS and I'm used to working on Linux. While traffic was increasing, I managed to keep up this high memory demanding website without added monthly costs with the use of some smart tweaks. visit website
Univeg wanted to redesign their ExpressionEngin based website. My task was to translate a static design into a template for their ExpressionEngine CMS
The Future Build was one of the biggest Dubai related projects I've done so far. They wanted their search and products browser to load the products once and from then on be searchable and filterable without ever needing to do one request to the server. Concidering the immens list of products and filters this wasn't an easy task performance wise. This is the project where I I definitely learned the importance of keeping performance in mind the hard way. But after all, it ended well, and from then on performace became key in all my work.
One of the things that bothered me in ExpressionEngine was that you never knew how your content really looked until you visited the website. I wanted clients to notice when their wysiwyg content doesn't look good on tablets or smartphone. They are the end users of our projects, not developers that are used to testing this kind of stuff. Non of the existing add-ons for ExpressionEngine offered this kind of functionality, so I made an add-on myself.
