Please do check out more than ten of my projects in detail and with links to their respective git repositories and/or site on pfiers.net/projects.
These include Android apps in Java & Kotlin, modern and responsive websites using technologies like Typescript, Vue.js etc., and embedded systems programmed in C++.
As an undergraduate student I'm specialising in systems and networks, so this one's kind of a given.
I like analysing the inner workings of systems and hardening the security of my own software projects. And I always keep the thought of how a system could be abused and how to protect it in the back of my mind, even when creating a one-off protocol or a server application After all, a little déformation professionnelle never hurt anyone.
I’d love to pursue this interest further professionally.
Cartography & GIS
This includes most of the projects I work on in my free time. OpenStreetMap, a collaborative and freely editable map, being the biggest driving factor.
I'm a member of OSM Belgium and the OSM Foundation, and I've contributed several projects. Including plugins for JOSM - a map editor -, some specialised websites, and (at the time of writing) two Android apps.
