Hello, I'm Michael!

Let's connect

Who am I?

I'm Michael, a full time and full stack (web) developer.

Born in 1994, raised and living in Belgium. Since I was 15-16 years old I've been obsessed with technology. Since then I chose to study something with computers, hardware and software focused. During all these student years I've chosen the web developer path as dream job, with also self-studied hardware path.

My favorite is back-end, but front-end is welcome too. I also love building computers, troubleshooting them and fixing them (but less so on software side). My hobbies are listening to music, festivals (I'd like to actually visit more of em), gaming, programming, movies, driving bike and some more.

As you can see my life is kinda based on technology.

.NET

65%

C#, ASP.NET, .NET Core, Unity

Front end web development

80%

HTML, CSS, SASS, JS/Jquery, Tailwind, Bootstrap, webpack/gulp, ...

Back end web development

Databases

Operating Systems

Note: the percentages are based on experience of a topic.

Here's what I made

These are the projects I finished or I'm busy with.

Private Servers

I manage and managed several virtual private servers: for my own and for gaming communities. Mostly for maintaining them, linking domains, installing services and much more.

API's

I really enjoy working with API's. I've worked with the API of PayPal, Twitter, Pingdom, Google, PayConiq, Microsoft, Canvas LMS, Campaign monitor and probably more.

Multiplayer servers

I was scripter of 3 San Andreas Multiplayer Servers, for 2 of them I made the website and user control panel on my own. The servers were LM-DM, Police And Terrorists and Minigames Server.

Bakery

My father has a bakery which I made a website for.

Visit website

Flarum

Flarum is forum software which I contributed to by making some extensions: MyBB to flarum, profile views and discussion views

Hardware scraper

Not an open source project but while ship shortages continue throughout 2021 and 2022 it's been impossible to get a gaming graphics card and other PC components. To counter this I've made a scrape bot and the data is publicly available.

Visit website

Youtube converter

I have a Youtube API service that downloads and converts video's and gives a JSON response. An open-source project i'm quite fond of: with or without Laravel available.

Visit website

Computer builds

I've build desktop computers for my own, for family, for fun. It's so satisfying when booting up your freshly new PC for the first time. I have some video's on my Youtube.
