As a senior Java developer with eight years of professional development experience developing backend and frontend code. I have held customer workshops, led multi-national projects and implemented solutions from inception to finish. I have a broad field of technical interests, including different programming languages, networking, concurrency and a bit of hardware development. I participate in Barcamps and Coding Dojos, and keep track of the state of the art in software development.

Small excerpt of projects:

  • Architected and developed the Alfresco Transformation Server, a product distributed worldwide via OEM agreement by alfresco.com. The solution uses Java, .NET, MS Office via COM and native Win32 code to convert various file formats. The solution was architected to run unattended for long periods of time.
  • Scania: architected the rollout of Alfresco ECM and the integration into the corporate authentication system. During the project, a data extraction and transformation middleware was custom-built to migrate 200,000 documents from the legacy Quickr solution to Alfresco, including metadata. The project was completed – in budget – in less than a month.
  • Leica Geosystems: Development of an Intranet solution based on Alfresco and integrated with Active Directory. Developed a custom PDF/A archival solution with Hitachi and SAP integration to meet compliance regulations.
  • Elin GmbH: Relaunch of multiple internal and external websites based on Alfresco WCMS, as well as the implementation and upgrade of Alfresco for the corporate intranet. Integration of the Pentaho Business Intelligence Suite in order to gain insight in how Alfresco is used and by whom.
  • Developed an improved Gradle based build system, with support for in-place launch of Jetty, greatly reducing setup time when moving between projects.
