I’m Jan Stevens (or Fritz) and 25 years old, and have a Masters Degree Electronics and Informatics at the former Artesis College University (now University of Antwerp). During my studies I worked at web agency Nivario as an All-round front-end freelancer. I’m currently employed as a Ruby/Rails developer at PlayPass. We develop a complete web application to mange crowd, crew and integrate cashless payments for large events (like festivals).
My day to day activities include programming new features for upcoming festivals (Rock Werchter, Graspop, Cruilla, Al Rumbo,...) and improve our current Rails application. My current focus and interests are:
- Rails and Ruby development
- AngularJS and front-end
- HTML5 and CSS mobile development
- Interfacing with various hardware
- High performant applications that integrate with various ticket providers (TicketMaster/Paylogic)
- Performance and Benchmarking
In my spare time I like watching movies and series, including Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Six Feet Under and other great HBO’s instalments. Duren the weekends I hang around with friends (or my girlfriend) in the local pubs. I use my bicycle as primary transportation, so I can listen to a collection of various alternative rock artists.
