Since I'm passing many hours behind a computer screen, my body is tortured whole day long. Phisically I try to compensate this with extreme hinking. It gives me a good reason to keep my body in shape. This year we are planning to climb the highest mountain of Norway during winter time. With a budget of 300€ we will be away for a week. This means that we look for the most cheap way to travel and hike. Instead of buying expensive equipement, we use basic things. For example we will use 2 low quality sleeping bags to fight the cold instead of one expansive sleeping bag. This will provide valuable information for the average hikers. Follow our project here.

Winter hike

Besides being nurdisch, I'm an active christian and a hiker. I try to do one big hiking trip every year. This year I'm going to hike in the winter. Together with 2 friends I'm trying to climb the highest mountain of norway. Using only basic equipement and sleeping in a tent. You can follow this trip on this sharepoint 2003 site.  This site is no longer available!

About the author

I started as a VB6 developer, programming all kinds of applications. I also got involved in the development of a e-market in ASP.

When .Net was introduced, I had the privilege to start in a team of professionals and develop a framework. I learned a lot and started to work as a c#.Net consultant from then on.

After 2 years I also got the chance to work for several months with SharePoint. SharePoint kept chasing me all the years after and when the product got more and more mature I started to love it. Then SharePoint was a daily occupation for me. I implemented a large quality document management system at PMRL being the only developer/technical analyst. Working close together with the QA department we succeeded in making and improving a very good Quality document management system. Its used up until this day.

I worked for 6 years as a .Net consultant for 2 of the largest consultancy companies in Belgium. One of my last projects with the consultancy was creating a custom LIMS system in c#.Net. This was a success and the customer asked me to stay and help to expand and maintain this LIMS. I had great years in this company. There was a focus on innovation and a lot of opportunities for improving and developing new IS systems. Apart from several small projects I further more improved the custom LIMS system, created a SOP library based on SharePoint and a web based Skill matrix system to handle the skills of the employees in the company. 

Then I was involved in transferring the LIMS to a new lab in Singapore. This was done in a short time frame. The deployment was again a success and it passed the GLP inspection tests. I learned a lot from the Quality engineers about validation of computerized systems.

At my current job I have a wide range of challenges. Mainly I'm still working with .Net (VB.net and C#.Net). But outside of the Microsoft world I also do some ABAB programming in our SAP system. Like developing Adobe Forms and the program behind it. Or making small changes to customized code.

I'm working for 2 years with objective C now. Creating apps for factories across Europe. People in the factory are working with IPad to take pictures and upload them to orders and more. Already more and more projects are coming my way. The iOS apps are supported by a home made .Net architecture that exposes WCF services. Its working great. My second app is almost ready for deployment in factories. Now I started an App for the management team so they can manage projects on their IPAD and IPHONE. Next generation apps are build with a .Net Web API background combined with EF 6.0.
