Kalkhoff Events

A module that extends the already existing events feed. Due to the coronavirus, this brand wanted users to register for their upcoming events so that they would know how many people would show up and take the necessary precautions.

The user data is fully manageable through Magento Admin UI components, and an automized emailing process with QR-code generation was added.

Virtual Categories for Ajax Catalog
An Ajax driven module that extends the already extensively customized catalog module with virtual categories. Virtual Category data such as description, images, and URL key must be loaded on filter selection, creating a content-rich catalog experience. The virtual categories are also directly accessible at the corresponding URL, and the corresponding filters are automatically applied to the catalog.

Headless Solution for ANWB
Back-end development for the most prominent tourist association in the Netherlands. During this project, I was in charge of migrating existing Magento 1 code and creating new functionalities for the highly customized eCommerce project.

Swiss Sense
Worked on upgrading the existing custom code of this project to comply with the updated Magento 2 coding standards. To help migrate all Bluefoot content to Pagebuilder, I created a Python script that found all pages with inline styling and converted that to new .less files.
