About me

During the last 9 years, I have had the honor to work for a large number of companies, based in Belgium or France, as a web developer. These companies practice e-commerce, customer data management, bank flow management and more.

I work mainly with modern tools and frameworks such as Symfony, Python, NodeJS, ... I also take care of setting up hosting (Cloud or dedicated servers as needed).

I pay a particular attention to the quality of the code but also to the performances (of the development to the putting in production but also a long-term accompaniment)

As a full stack web developer, I have the experience and knowledge to create an effective MVP and quickly experience a new project idea on the market.
