In 2003 I started my own company and worked on projects for both small and large corporations.
As a data analytics team lead for a data fabric project I am in charge of a team that is responsible for data that is related to the railway traffic. We create ORM models from the raw application data and transform the data in DBT. This leads to a clear data structure so that it can be consumed by the business stakeholders. Furthermore we build and validate the necessary Power BI reports in order to get maximum insights in the data. Data Quality is closely monitored and visualised so that it can serve as a starting point for the improvement of the source data. Alignment of the proces, business and functional-technical analysis with the data reports and stakeholder management.
Shortly after iFlux was founded, I started working on the iFLUX sampling application. In 2021 I expanded my activities at iFLUX and took the lead role in the development of the IoT Sensing application.
iFLUX sampling - Cartridges
iFLUX Sensing - IoT sensors
Architecture, process, business and functional-technical analysis, management and governance of the data, databases and infrastructure for the processing, Geolocation and visualization of the IoT sensors. The raw data of the different sensors is processed and augmented based on the metadata that is configured in the custom cloud platform (ETL dataflow) that runs on Digital Ocean and AWS. Functional analysis, DevOps (development, server setup, Continuous Integration setup with Git, ...) and management of the Fluxsense application in order to support the business processes. Cost and timing estimations for the API implementation and connections to the webservices of external partners. Analysis and implementation of the NGSI models for the connection to the Smart Cities platform. The data is stored in a PostgreSQL database and accessed though SQL and ORM, the code is maintained in a Git repository, some components are contained in Docker containers, Power BI and Grafana is used for reporting. Datascience and anomaly detection (isolation forest) is handled in Jupyter Notebooks. The data infrastructure (datalake) is based on PostGreSQL, Influx databases and AWS S3 storage.
Angular Front-end development for the ‘Natuurwaarde verkenner’ tool. This tool is used to investigate the bio-economical impact of Geographic changes in an urban or rural landscape. Users can draw scenario’s and regions in a graphical Geo-interface. The geographic regions are calculated with the geospatial analysis lib (Turf) and combined with data that is loaded from a GeoServer. The code is maintained in a Git repository, CI/CD with Git and Jenkins.
Backend API development for the Energy Calculation tool written in Python, Django and the Django Rest Framework. Organisation of the code in a calculation library and a REST interface. Creation of the necessary unit tests to validate the core models. Setup of the cloud testing infrastructure on AWS virtual servers.
Bug fixes and improvements for the Django based microsites framework.
iOS development of the iPhone app for the Zembro bracelet. The Zembro bracelet is the first intelligent bracelet specially designed for the elderly. The iPhone app reacts on bracelet alarms and allows the family to contact the elder.
Creation of various websites and apps based on the Django CMS solution that was instantiated in 2014. Development of an Edit In Place solution for the Content Management solution and streamlining the setup procedure.
Finalisation of the Sampalu sequencer app for kids. This native iOS app uses core audio to meet the necessary performance for synchronous playback of audio samples and asynchronous communication with the visualisation thread. The server side web services are migrated from a Php to a Python Django environment.
Analysis and development of a prototype that improves the online shopping experience. The prototype is based on Python and the Django framework.
Transfer and integration of Telenet.be from Drupal to AEM (Adobe Experience Manager). Development and integration of the custom applications in the AEM content management system based on Java, JCR and Angular.
Visualisation of Geographical in situ and Earth Observation data.
The geospatial data is gathered with Python and consolidated in a PostGIS database that feeds Geoserver. The front end application is build with Ext JS and Openlayers, the backend combines Java servlets and Python cgi-scripting with a Gis enabled PostgreSQL database that is accessed through a GeoServer.
Visualization of air quality maps and SMOG episodes for the main air pollution parameters. Generation and visualization of Geo referenced time-series.
Content Management Solution for the Urban Climate Service Center. The team needed a website where tools and scientific content can easily be blended and maintained.
Used technology: Bootstrap, Django and Python.
Improvement of the online version of the Eratools application. Development of an offline solution for the Market Analysis application based on AngularJS and PhoneGap Cordova.
Java and JSF (Java Server Faces) implementation of the EBL (Electronisch Bestel Loket) REST-style interface.
Php development of a social media contest in Drupal 7.
