The Things Network SDKs and Node-RED Nodes
At The Things Industries, I was responsible for most of the SDK and API integrations. To help our clients prototype their products quickly during our workshops and product tours, I built The Thing Network node SDK from scratch and implemented the Node-RED nodes on top of it.
Using these nodes helped our community and potential clients better understand the technology on an abstract level, increasing the wow factor during workshops and driving conversion rate in return.

Virtual Showroom for Paris Fashion Week

Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, my client, Jan-Jan Van Essche, could not attend Paris Fashion Week, where he would normally showcase the new season of his clothing line. Instead, we developed a virtual showroom, integrating detailed information about the clothing and used fabrics.

The showroom featured a short film that showcased all the new items in interesting ways. The resulting experience was received with great enthusiasm by Jan-Jan's clients, resulting in increased brand recognition and more sales.

Webshop for Atelier Solarshop
For Atelier Solarshop, I built a Shopify storefront on top of TypeScript, Next.js, and React.

The webshop is customized to the customer's demands and needs and operates successfully in a global setting thanks to well-tuned SEO.
