About me

I was always interested in computers, technology and airplanes. I am the kind of guy who will always search to understand how things work. I like the seamless working of everything technical and like the automation of it.

Hacker ?

A hacker is someone who is able to take stuff, break it, see how it works and then rebuild it into something better. Every few years, hackers gather in events where they solve problems together. I have been part of hacker communities since 2016 and have become more and more involved in them over the years.
Hackers also contribute a lot to Free and Open Source software (I did to)
I have volunteered in those communities, have been a network and system administrator in some of them (which comes with unique challenges) and will continue for years to come. I hope I can help people getting as much out of the community as I did.

The Aviation stuff

Because of my interest in aviation, I wanted to take one step further. So I stepped foot in the door to see what is possible inside the industry. Turns out that the aviation industry could benefit from better IT services, and at the same time, the IT industry could learn from the aviation industry on how to solve problems

My mother tongue is French. I also learned to speak Dutch from a very young age. When I was growing up, I did all my extra-curricular activities in it. For English, I had to learn it by listening and reading it. Back in 2010, when I started getting access to the internet, almost all the content about computers was in English. I started with that. And today, I'm fluent in French, Dutch and English.
