Education

2021 Hogeschool Rotterdam: Minor data engineering

Minor where I learned to work with Microsoft Power BI to get value out of the combination of data in the different functions that I programmed for GILO. This value came from a dashboard that calculated a total score of the process in improving the paper of the student.

2018 - 2022 Inholland Haarlem

A broad degree where I learn different sides of the IT spectrum like designing, networking, SQL databases, making websites and programming. From this broad experience I can make a choice in which IT subject I want to specialize. I learned from the degree that my motivation is not to code for big projects anymore. I want to specialize on scripting and IT automatization and the optimization of business processes with IT.

The most valuable skills I got from the degree is from the minor security where I learned about CVE’s and how to write a security report and how to write secure programming code in C#. In the Cloud minor I learned how to use C# optimally to make use of the Azure I would like to learn more about AWS and Azure techniques as a result but also how to optimize software to work with multiple Cloud environments, that for example code is also compatible with open source cloud software like OpenStack for blob/block storage and FaaS (function as a service) like Qinling.

Occupation

2022 Logius, The Hague, South-Holland

Implementing the Kubescape scanner with extra data extraction to get value for the teams in Logius to check their containers and Kubernetes configuration for currently known security issues. I did research about Logius’ policies and researched the similarities in Kubernetes policies and best practices. For the most important checks in best practice policies i made a risk/impact analysis in my thesis.

2021-2022 Restaurant Parck, Haarlem, North-Holland

2021 GILO, Rijswijk, South-Holland

Implementing extra components for the GILO software as part of the minor Data Engineering in Rotterdam. Here I learned about working for a startup and about programming in Python in more depth. I learned to work with the libraries spaCy and NLTK to create functions for the GILO software. These functions consisted of a document classifier and recognizing scholarly definitions, acronyms and abbreviations. I also made functions for detecting consistency issues in text and to clarify hard-to-read sentences.

2020 - 2021 CYSO B.V., Alkmaar, North-Holland

Second job in the summer holidays: Implemented an extra plugin for the support desk software to track the time for each ticket until it was solved. I made some algorithms in ElasticSearch to get value of the time tracking data to track the performance of the service desk operators at CYSO.
