After my studies in Electronic Engineering and Industrial Computer Science, I started my career in a R&D department designing a remote surveillance and access control system. Over the years however, my projects became more “classic” and by and by, I left the hardware domain and concentrated entirely on software development, traveling from the C++ “Old World” to the new Java continent. After years enjoying XML configuration files with Struts, Hibernate, Spring and J2EE applications, I finally specialized myself in Java EE 6.
Today, I work as Information System and Java Architect, as Technical Manager, as Java Developer or as Trainer, having my main emphasis on Java Enterprise Edition 6 technologies. Occasionally, I speak at conferences. I’m organizing the Brussels Java User Group and the Random Hacks of Kindness Belgium event. I’m currently also member of the DEVOXX team and also do a lot of “Robotics for Kids” workshops for the Greenlight For Girls foundation.
Despite of my passion for Java, I still am very connected to more industrial ICT, electronics and low-level programming (Embedded Technologies, Ardiuno, NAO robots, Lego Mindstorm, C/C++ and much more).
