Hello, I'm Gertjan ๐Ÿ‘‹

I'm living in the Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ together with my wife and two kids ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ. Friends and family are very important to me, so spending time with them is one of my favorite things to do when work is done. But of course, I also need some "Me Time" and I mostly spend that by going to the gym at least once a week, watching Formula 1, playing some Rocket League or racing games.

My family

So now you know me a bit, I would like to tell you what kind of work I do right now.

I'm a full-stack developer working and a lead developer working on creating websites, web-applications, webshops and developing an in-house CMS. My main focus is helping the team get the most out of their days and developing alongside them building great stuff to help the health sector.

I mainly focused on building a custom CMS for the websites and possible API connections with external systems/services. For this, I took advantage of everything Laravel offered from version 4.2 all the way to version 5.5. I also made APIs for the frontend team or between the core system and CMS of the customer. I also managed 2 other backend developers during my last year.

  • Laravel 4.2 until 5.5
  • Laravel Envoy
  • Vue
