Hi there, I’m Veerle Deschepper, but you can call me V if you like. I’m an entrepreneur, developer, writer, photographer, reader, painter, and I love to create Art – every tiny bit of it. I’m also a lego, geocaching, cats and X-files fan. Oh and yeah I love everything web and yes.. I do have a homelab with lots, lots of gear.
As a person I tend to be idealistic, resilient attitude in the face of hardship, seeker of value and harmony, open minded, IT in function of the user advocate, flexible, very creative, passionate, energetic, dedicated, and hard working.
I’m good at problem solving, Object Oriented thinking, simple solutions for complex questions, able to connect many far-flung dots into a single theme, building IT web apps for people, consulting for a wide area of IT solutions, writing, and hands on training.
I like to work with PHP with the Laravel Framework. I used to work with AngularJS and before that jQuery — but today I really prefer VueJS. I manage my own servers (droplets), they run Ubuntu LTS now. They used to run on Debian. I’m no Linux expert, neither a windows one (anymore) and a growing MacOS one – but I prefer to write code, not ICT.
I said goodbye to Apache a long time ago, now Nginx is my friend. Just like I now use NPM instead of Bower to manage my code. Combined with Webpack instead of the now ancient Gulp .. and the one with the wild pork logo. I use css, with Sass or Less. or not.
As far as projectmanagement goes I now use the complete Atlassian Stack, which I manage myself. As communication-tool I prefer to use Slack, its so much more convenient than e-mail. That last one I do manage myself, with G-suite.
Oh. Yeah. I do speak Dutch as well. In fact it’s my mother tongue.. technically..
I ❤ my cat, my friends, my family, boardgames, doodling, writing, Lego, code, 3D printing, drawing, photography, improving my life, reading, being outdoors and finding hidden treasures.
Sometimes I write useful posts, sometimes very silly, and a bit dark ones.
But most times I write, create, build, code, play and explore other realities.
.. I’m also a Scout for life – Creative Sifaka – present!
