Software developer at Newtec. I help building/maintaining the tools used for monitoring the faults/performance of Newtec's satellite equipment. While our monitoring application is written in .NET, I also use a variety of other technologies: html5/javascript, powershell scripting and a minor amount of Java.


During my years as first- and second-line helpdesk engineer I picked up a passion for software development in my free time. Wanting to steer my career in this direction I decided to take proper training in order to become a fulltime software developer. While most of my experience is with the .NET framework I also love experimenting with other modern languages: During my free time I love tinkering with Python and Lua.
