My name is Patrick Verzele.
I was born in a small town near Antwerp in Belgium.
I am a young and innovative developer. At first I was only interested in web development, but by the years my love for VOIP technologies (VOIP using SIP in particular) has developed.
Currently I am working for a telecoms called IOVOX. I started at IOVOX as a web developer. Together with my colleagues we built IOVOX's analytics portal. During this time I have learned - and used my knowledge in practice - a lot about MySQL database optimisation and performing extended analytics on available data. After a year and a half of web development I grew further into the company. I was honoured to be able to start working on our voice applications. And now, at the time of this writing, I am only doing voice development using SIP for IOVOX.
My skill set includes:
Others of my skills are Java, Ruby, Python and VB.NET.
Next to my programming background I have a big knowledge of networking and hardware.
I am not a complete nerd though, I also have an unspoken passion for classic cars and beer.
I own a Triumph Spitfire 1500 built in late 1977. People who know me in person could call my car my second love.
In the small amounts of free time I get, I spend time brewing my own beer, and of course tasting and comparing lots of beers (preferably Belgian beers).
Valco Soft did the installation and maintenance of RetroSpect back-up software for their customers. Every back-up sent an e-mail on success and different e-mails on failure. They needed an application which analysed these e-mails and was able to show the state of the RetroSpect servers per customer. I have built a VB.NET service which reads out the e-mail from an iMAP server and keeps track of the status in a MsSQL database. Then I have built a web page which uses this MsSQL database to give extended information about the status of the back-up servers.
I have designed the website and build a CMS system behind it for easy maintenance. The CMS system allows the administrator to edit the CSS and all the pages.
Valco Soft is an official reseller of Norman, Microsoft and other products. They were in need of a web application to maintain and keep track of the licenses which were sold. The licenses had to be automatically purchased from the suppliers and linked to the company who bought them.
