About Me

I've been developing php since i was about 11 years old. I think that was just around the beginning of php 4. I've been interested in creating custom made e-commerce systems at that time already. When Php 5 came out things started to get really interested with databases and much more stuff.

Around the age of 15 i got my first real client. And from there on things took a serious turn. I started my own business at the age of 19 and took on all sorts of minor and medium clients during my education at the Windesheim.
I came in touch with PrestaShop somewhere around 2012. But before that i've worked a lot with WooCommerce, VirtueMart, X-cart and also many custom made E-commerce systems.

For PrestaShop clients i've made a lot of API connections, XML/JSON,CSV import and export modules for suppliers, cash register programs, PIM systems, ERP systems and much more. My focus has mainly been on the back-end of the systems, but i've also made a fare share of front-end changes and custom modules for clients.

What i enjoy the most is when a client really needs something custom made. I like to think with the client and come up with a solution that fits their needs. I'm not afraid to take on a challenge and i'm always looking for new things to learn.
