ProjectsThis is just a very small selection of the projects I worked on.
DF Storyteller is a client side application for parsing and storing Dwarf Fortress Legends files. It provides an API for other apps to visualize the data.
This application was written in Rust. It is a full stack application. It incorporates a lot of technologies, some notable are:
- Good software architecture
- Automatic documentation creation
- Multi-database support
- CI/CD Pipeline (using Docker)
- RESTfull/GraphQL API
- Advanced error handling
- Automatic bug reporting
- Cross platform
- Security first design

President Student Council Hasselt University
Reforming and very actively participating in the governance of the university. There where a lot of projects we accomplished: Mobility problems, Bringing students together in sub organizations, Study track rule changes, Internal governance, National and Internal student representation.
This gave me more inside into the workings of big organizations, like universities. Working with and steering of big teams (of volunteers) to complete projects. (Internal) Governance and politics inside the organizations.

LaTeX ⇒ HTML Compiler
Compiler for LaTeX to HTML. This worked on a subset of LaTeX2e and uses MathML. The compiler was made using BISON and FLEX and can easily be expanded to support all of LaTeX2e.
An application that implements face detection in MATLAB. It
is based on ‘Face Detection in Color Images’. We use a color image and try to
detect human faces in the image. This is done by using the color components of
the image to extrapolate where the faces are and to search for eyes and mouths.

Lixo is a small game that I developed for Android devices. It is a lightweight app that can be run on almost any device.
A fun little game to spend a few minutes with.
Platform to keep track of records.
I developed this system together with Bjorn Schijff for an Arma 3 military simulation unit. We were leading this unit at the time.
We made this system to keep track of our members and their activities. This system also allowed the members to upload missions of their own and make them playable on the server.
Most advanced features:
- Dynamic roster tree view
- Upload missions to the server
- Operations log
This system was put in place because it made it easier to distribute work to more personnel.
We developed this system in our spare time.
We stopped development in September 2015 because we both retired from the unit.
Tom Mahieu and I made a UML-Editor as a project for university. We developed this project in Java. The most notable features are:
- Edit the UML
- Save and Load UML's
- Export to Java-code (and IDE-project files)
- Export to image
- Undo/Redo capability
For one of the courses during my studies at UHasselt I had an assignment to build a website for a fictional movie theater. This website was built from scratch and did not use any external plugins. It used all of the latest HTML5 standards and uses PHP with a PostgreSQL database.
File system organizer
For my graduation project in secondary education I made a program that can organize files by metadata. This program was written in C++ using OpenGL and GLUT and Microsoft Access database. Most notable features (mainly in application design):
- Scans and indexes a file-system fairly fast.
- Offside data modifications and later committing changes.
- Uses a lot of factors to sort data.
- Move and sort files easily.
