Today, after spending 4 years in college, I signed my first contract at In The Pocket as a full stack developer.
Can't wait to start working here, but I realise that none of this would have been possible without the contribution of the people below.
I would never be where I now am without every one of them. Of course, a list in no order.
Mom & dad
for giving me the option to follow a 3 year course (ultimately ending up being 4 years) which they had no clue of what it consisted. For the other support throughout every day in life.
for being the crazy guy he is, playing Playstation together, laughing at stupid things and taking my mind off in general. Someone I truly admire for his perseverance and intelligence.
the girl & love I met in school. You made me strive for the best and only the best. Always supportive, always perfect. No more words needed.
who taught me everything I wanted to know about coding and the web. You spiked my interest for developing and wanting to pursue a career in development. I owe a lot to the skills you transferred into my brain and I'm eternally grateful for that.
Arne, Simon, Wouter, Gertjan and Jean at Typework/NephroFlow
for taking a curious development student into work for a month. I found a true love for functional programming here and love that I got the opportunity here to work in a production environment startup. Keep on doing what you do.
The complete #devinehowest team
The best higher educational course there is for design & dev in Belgium. Pushing their students to only go for the best and create crazy cool shit.
for breaking up with me. If I wouldn't of gotten this, I would have never had the possibility to grow, become a great programmer and pursue a successful career and happy life.
The interesting dude that I started talking to in my second year of Devine, and which turned out to be a long-lasting friendship throughout school & life. Glad to call him my co-worker soon!
Another weird guy which in who I found my peer. Thanks for those cool years in Devine and the ridiculously funny conversations we have.
Another part of the devinemates, the guy who takes crazy cool pictures and rocks a design. Thanks for the insights & hangouts during those 3 years.
for being that weirdest friend of them all and giving our gang laughs at Devine. Good luck in your future plans mate!
Allegra, Anna, Arthur, Daniel, Dimitri, Eric, Fei, Louise
the team that took me in at Edenspiekermann and made my scary time in Berlin turn into a nice 3 months filled with good work, laughter, hanging out and enjoying work & Berlin. Thank you gang, keep doing what you do, each one of you.
Everyone at Espi
for making a family like I've never seen one in a company. Espi is all about the people and the people make it a great place.
My Lab9 mates
crazy-good-friends and people who can make you laugh in a pinch. Always up for a drink or Vedettje at Republiek (RIP).
my non developer/designer friend who I thank for an awesome & super-valued friendship and our hour-long talks about Floating Points, jazz, records, concerts, music… over a nice beer or cocktail.
Please note that if you feel like I've forgotten you, it's not because you're not on the list that I didn't remember you. Thank you as well.
