In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012. Currently I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen. As a member of the Pervasive Interaction Technology Lab (pIT Lab), I'm working on Next Generation Technologies for Global Software Development (NeXGSD) where I apply Activity-Based Computing (ABC) principles throughout the lifecycle of software development to improve tool integration and improve knowledge transfer between coworkers.

I mainly develop in C#, but occasionally do C++, PHP, Flash/actionscript 3 and Java projects. I care a lot about proper code design, and some people tend to say I overdo it.

comment What causes someone to frequently see particular patterns of digits when they look at a clock?
@Dr.Bronx It is not only happening to you, ... but you might be the only one who is concerned about it though. As an exercise however, it might be interesting to calculate the percentage of 'special times' you recognize, out of all possible combinations. Is '13:00' special? Is '13:05'?

comment Determine if a WPF DependencyProperty value is inherited
I was using ReadLocalValue before to determine whether a value was set in a custom Panel. It lead to some really weird behavior where when a value was applied by a style, my panel would still believe the value wasn't set. Only when calling SetValue, would the panel start outlining my elements the way they were supposed to, although GetValue did return the values correctly. The proper way to go about this is as per Kent's answer, which gives you all of the information, rather than just the side effect (local value).

"Then create a Style for each derive type that is BasedOn ViewBaseStyle." This results in an exception since "Can only base on a Style with target type that is base type 'TestView'."

I've appreciated most of your 'should be a comment' flags. The poster not having enough rep is not an excuse to post a comment as an answer.

comment What exactly is a self-help question?
Unclear from your post whether you are aware of this so will just clarify: closed questions do not influence the "%answered" metric. "%answered" is the percentage of answered open questions. Thus closing is exactly what we should do with unanswerable questions.

comment Can you assign a TypeConverter without a TypeConverterAttribute?
This however, does not work for XAML, since XAML does not take component modifications at runtime into account. I found a way around this using a TypeConverter which redirects its implementation to a converter loaded using TypeDescriptor.
