Freelance Drupal Developer

Who am I?

I'm a Dutch software developer based in Berlin. After more then 10 years of developing web and windows applications in VB, Deplhi, C# and JAVA, about 3 years ago I fell in love with a CMS: DRUPAL.
 
I have concentrated on Drupal development ever since. As a coder, my focus lies on module development and sitebuilding. But if you need your site designed as well, i cooporate with some great design agencies!
 

Why Drupal?

After the initial learning curve I found that I could get a site with lots of functionality up and running in a fraction of the time needed in for example C#. There are thousands of extremely useful modules available, and using views, panels, feeds, rules, organic groups and a number of smaller modules, you can mostly cover 90% of your functionality. And what's missing can be covered with custom module development.
And not unimportant: It's open source. Which is a relieve to work with after spending a decade in a microsoft environment.

Drupal Commerce

With drupal commerce, drupal offers a powerful and extensible commerce platform. I have implemented a number of drupal commerce websites, some of which have been heavily customised. Integration of both a B2C and B2B (wholesale) site, facetted search, interfacing with ERP software, product import, integration with fullfillment centers, etc.
