I'm a big fan of Atlassian. I try to use both their tools and best practices as much as I can. If you haven't heard about their best practice, you should definitely check their Team Playbook. While being the Atlassian administrator for many years I'm also one of the two leads for the Belgian User Group.
While being a Java Developer I've been a Scrum Master at De Persgroep as well. I love to improve on a repetitive basis and helping my team go forward is a passion.
After three years and an internship at MIAAtech, which partially took place in Sillicon Valley, I graduated.
In August 2011, I started as a Java Consultant at Axxes IT. During the first month we were being prepared with a Summer Traineeship. Shortly after I was able to start my first consultancy mission at De Persgroep.
After being a consultant for De Persgroep (try & hire contract) for 1 year, I had the opportunity to either get a permanent contract or stay a consultant. I chose the first option as I thought de Persgroep was a very nice and challenging environment. 9 years later I still don't regret that choice.
