Web Application Architect

Intro

Hi! I'm Niels. I turn ideas into code, and coffee into ideas :)

I started out as a SharePoint and .NET consultant at Amplexor (2013), then pivoted and began building Web Applications as a freelance consultant (Qiip Consulting °2016).

Work Experience

2016 - present

After leaving Amplexor (and the .NET platform) I founded Qiip Consulting to allow me to better focus on the Web Platform.

Amplexor creates custom content management systems built on top of SharePoint. But don't bother asking me about this anymore. I am no longer working with SharePoint :-)

Open-source Projects

I always use the same method when I want to learn a new technology stack:
apply it in a real-world project. Learning by doing has never failed me :-)

Listing all of these projects here would make the resume way too long, so please visit https://niels.me for my portfolio.
