Antwerp, Belgium / Barcelona, Spain


Hi I'm Nicolas, and when it comes to development related things I have a wide range of interests, an excerpt:

  • Languages: C, C++, Java, Scala, Python, PHP, Lua, Javascript ...
  • Web development: Javascript (JQuery, mootools, raphael, ...), WebGL, HTML5, CSS
  • Databases: PostgreSQL, Oracle, MySQL, SQLite, MongoDB (the last one on a project I inherited, unfortunately we had no end of trouble with that one, admittedly it was not the newest version but...)

I've worked extensively with Windows but these days I mostly do *NIX (Linux and OSX), which I enjoy because they truly feel like they are programmers' OS'es. You can find my résumé on my home page: http://www.aktau.be/.

At any rate, you can check out my github: https://github.com/aktau (the org for my game engine project is here: https://github.com/warfare).

Apart from that I enjoy travelling and sports such as football and running (that would be soccer for Americans). I've visited 3 continents and intend to do the rest as soon as possible. Tangentially, living somewhere is also one of my life goals.
