Your Name

Hi, I'm Brecht!

I help companies and developers build great web-products.


"I really loved Brecht's workshop. Brecht was very knowledgeable and friendly and shared a lot of practical tips from his prior experiences building large web applications. The workshop was laid out well, alternating between theory and practical coding exercises. I would highly recommend Brecht's workshop to any ambitious fellow Front-end Architect."
Jurgen Van de Moere - Developer expert @Google

Let's work together!

Looking for frontend software expertise? I would love to work with your team! Starting a large-scale web-project? Let me help you get started! Is your web-project beyond saving? Don't lose hope just yet! Having technical issues without solutions? I'll gladly take a look! Want me to run a workshop for you? Don't mind if I do! Not that sure about your code? Let me review that for you!


"Brecht is the "go to guy" for web development. He helped us to migrate our Silverlight application to a AngularJS - HTML5 web application and provided his experience in SPA's. He has an excellent understanding of the web environment and when given a good outlined mission will execute it in record time."
Bjorn V - Software Architect

Hi again!

Like I said.. I'm Brecht! I specialize in developing, architecting, rescuing large-scale web-projects and making technology choices for large companies. My focus lies on performance, scalability, pragmatism, and coaching professionals to become rockstar frontend-developers. My passion is mastering future-proof cut-edge technologies and applying them in large-scale web-projects. My main focus lies on software-web-projects that involve lots of javascript, and clientside coding.

Happy clients



"Brecht has supported us as trainer in Agular 2 during our Masterclass Front End. We hired him because of his thorough FE expertise. The 2 days he came to our office were a revelation for our consultants. About his course: It was perfectly worked out. Both in terms of content and style. The chosen case brought also a lot of added value. About him as trainer: Brecht knows what he’s doing. He makes the difference and even inspires during his sessions. That’s his USP. We’ll hire him again, without considering, as trainer or public speaker – expert level. Highly recommended!"
Toon Verbuyst - HR Manager @Axxes

Consultancy


"I’ll go to war with him any day of the week :-)"
Pieter C - Business Analyst at Hait

Would you like to consult me for the development/architecture of your project? Or do you need some help in making the right technology choices? Either way, I’d love to be a part of it.

I’m a teamplayer that keeps working on myself and others, seeing the bigger picture and doing what’s right for the project keeping the future in mind.

Do you want me to work in your team for a day, a week or even longterm? That sounds like fun! I’m not even afraid of evenings and saturdays.

The frontend landscape evolves every day. New frameworks are being released and browsers get smarter and faster. It’s not easy to keep up with the latest technologies and even when you do, it’s hard to make the right technology decisions for your needs. When you do make a technology decision for your company you want it to last for years. That’s why it’s important to make the right one!

When you choose a technology, then you have to make sure you know the common pitfalls and downsides of that technology.

A new technology can be the best thing that ever happened to your product, but that also means that it’s hard to find the right developers for the job, sometimes it’s even better to have a fulltime coach in your team.

Code reviews or audits

Wrote something you’re not quite sure of? Code reviews are an important aspect in the software development life cycle. I would gladly review your code to increase the quality of your development process.

How does a codereview work?

  1. I get a day of access to your codebase
  2. I take a day to evaluate/review your code and architecture.
  3. Within a few days I return an in dept document with suggestions, improvements and examples
  4. When you have read the feedback and written down questions, we arrange a Skype call or meeting to discuss the review. That way I can answer all your questions.

This way, you prevent making the same mistakes in the future. It’s a complete lession which is centered around your own code. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

"I worked with Brecht during his time as frontend architect at 'De Persgroep'. He's not only up to date on the newest frontend technologies and Single Page Application frameworks, but can transfer his knowledge during workshops, coaching sessions and pair programming. This combination makes him almost unique in his kind and an excellent architect."
Kwinten Pisman - Frontend software architect

Training & coaching

"Brecht had a very solid knowledge about his subject at the training. It was concise and based in a real example. After training he was also great with good support. I recommend him and I’m sure looking forward to other trainings."
Patrick Santana - Principal Consultant at Moogu

Made the perfect technology choice but can’t find the right competences on the market? Why don’t I train your team to become kickass frontend engineers?

Can’t get a great testcoverage on your codebase? I’ll gladly convince your team of the importance of unittesting and show them how to write testable code where unittesting is just a matter of minutes.

I can train/coach your people in different ways

  • Pairprogramming
  • Workshops
  • Hands on coding and coaching

Recruiting and interviews

"I experienced the training as a very good kickstart, a start in AngularJs and a way to code responsive single page web applications. Brecht has helped me with the many do's and don'ts so I could avoid the pitfals for a starting webdeveloper."
Jonas V - Software Engineer Egemin

Looking for potential employees, but don’t know if they have what it takes? I’ll gladly interview them for you and give you a detailled report of your candidate. If you want it to be quick I’ll even handle it over the phone.

Speaking on events

One of the most important aspects in software development is "share your knowledge". I also like to share my knowledge and talk about my experiences in webdevelopment. I'm constantly developing for big and small projects all over Belgium.

If your company or usergroup might be interested in having me over for giving a talk, do not hesitate to contact me.

"Brecht is your goto guy when it comes to single page web applications, he's also capable of transferring his knowledge to other team members."
Yannick Houbrix - Frontend competence coach @Axxes
