ABOUT

I'm a software engineer with a keen interest in using state of the art technologies to deliver high quality & user friendly mobile and web applications.

I obtained a master’s degree in applied computer science from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, where my main focus lay in web & information systems engineering, and where I did research for the WISE laboratory for my master thesis on Indoor Positioning Systems on the Android platform.

As a consultant at Capgemini, I worked on multiple projects at major international companies in the banking and utilities sectors. As a Java developer I worked on enterprise applications for their B2B or B2C clients.

In a world where ideas and technologies are changing at lightning speed, I have become an avid supporter of methods to improve the development process and deliver high quality products faster.

Most of my free time I spend climbing in the mountains and being involved in the Brussels boardgaming scene.

PROJECTS

COLOPHON

This website was made as an experiment to design a simple responsive wbesite from scratch. Many thanks to the following projects: http://getbootstrap.com/ for making it easy to create responsive websites, Font Awesome for the lovely icons and Raleway for the font. The color scheme is based on a palette featured in this article. This page is also hosted via Github pages, so the source code can be found here: https://github.com/wvrossem/wvrossem.github.io.
