Web Developer - Full Stack - JavaScript



I live in Amsterdam with my beautiful wife and lovely baby daughter. I like cooking and to go running. I have a special interest in Indonesia. That means I love the food and go on holiday there once per year with the family. Also I like JavaScript and JavaCoffee. I like to solve problems and come up with new approaches. I think it's great to keep on learning and to work with new technologies.

With my previous experience as business analyst and functional designer I have showed that I am analytical and a teamplayer that likes to work in an agile environment. What I like about web development is to be able to build applications myself and see the result. I like to work hard and celebrate great achievements with people I work with.

The first project at the Ironhack bootcamp was to create a game of choice. I chose to recreate the game Frogger that I loved to play as a child. I built the game in vanilla JavaScript with use of the HTML canvas element for the movement and transition. I followed an object orientated approach with use of classes and methods.

Flickr Search

Minimal Flickr Search app in React. With this app I learned to apply React Redux. I used React hooks to make sure the focus is in the searchbox when the app is loaded and the focus is on the search results when the pictures are searched or when you navigate to the next page. For the searchbox I make use of a debounce input component to make sure the search is only done after typing is finished. The pictures itself are lazy loaded depending on scroll position and become visible when loading is done. Pagination is added and pagination options depend on current page and amount of results.
