Vitus is a platform that was invented and developed by my sister Semmie and I, with which people can find their match with pets based on their personal preferences and living environment (family members, housing, etc). It introduces ranked search for pets in animal shelters. We call the module “Matchmaker”, and it calculates a score for each pet, based on the answers you provide in a questionnaire used in different animal shelters. The pets with the best scores are then recommended to you. The platform currently offers over 500 adoptable pets, 250 ambassadors that support our cause and the Matchmaker has been used over 2.500 times already. Also, the project is non-profit. Recently I have developed apps for Android and iOS using the Ionic-framework. The app has a nifty graphics-component that uses the PIXI-library to render photos of pets at random speeds, rotation and direction throughout the screen (see first screenshot below).

I joined the Whever team beginning of 2015 with the task of working on their iOS app and specifically the location-tracking of users. The app’s goal is to get people to be on time for meetings and it does that in a fun an clever way by using smart notifications, location-tracking of other invitees and gamification. You can read more about the app on their website: http://whever.co. The app is currently available in the App Store.
App Store Description:
“I’ll be there in 5”… Haven’t we heard that before? With Whever this is a thing of the past! Whever gets your friends to your meeting on time and shows you when they will arrive. Fun penalties for being late or rewards for being on schedule provide extra motivation to be on time for everyone.
Using Whever, you no longer have to worry about sharing where you want to meet up with your friends, finding out how to get there or waiting around not knowing when everyone will show up!
With Whever you:
– Get a notification when to leave in order to be on time
– See when everyone will arrive in the “Traveltime Tracker” in your meeting details
– Challenge your friends to be on time with a fun penalty or reward

Moments is an app developed by Everywhere.is. They hired me (through Foove) to do a rewrite of the codebase to make the app more robust and to implement background location-tracking. The app is currently available in the Google Play Store. For more information, you can visit Everywhere.is’ case study: http://everywhere.is/#/made/moments
App Store Description:
Any moment can have a location attached to it. Know exactly where you were when that life changing Facebook notification came through. When you took that important phone call, or even where you were last night after your big night out.
Your day is full of important events. So we keep track of them all on a gorgeous timeline. You can edit and share your day with friends and family and be sure that no great moment, day or night will ever be forgotten.
Moments gives you the option to automatically log your location, calls, texts, photos, videos and social networks. Just pick what you would like to be tracked and Moments will do the rest.
Hybrid (Android, iOS) – Spring 2015
Myke is a prototype app that is built by Foove during a one-week hackathon in the spring of 2015. It is developed using Ionic with a team of 8. The app recommends users which festival(s) they should visit, based on what music they like and what their friends like and also features a social component by allowing you to organise a festival visit with your friends, or so called crew. The app was never released as it was a prototype only. Due to lack of funding, the app was never launched. It still might be developed some day. You can find more information about Myke on the website: http://mykeapp.com.
iOS (native) – March 2014
Ordr is a crowdsourced solution for ordering and delivery. Order whatever you want wherever you are and let people nearby get it and deliver it to you. Ordering has never been this easy. Ordr was built with a team of 4, in which I was mainly responsible for the back-end (API) and partially responsible for the iOS development. Due to lack of funding, Ordr was never released but it did reach Beta status. For more information, please visit: http://getordr.com

Zooki is an iOS app that allows users to receive location-based offers through push notifications.

Due to lack of funding, the app was never released but it reached Beta status.
iOS (native) – December
Fietscontrole – or Bicycle Traffic Control is an app that allows user to report traffic controls (mostly for bike lights). The app has limited functionality to make its use easy and straightforward.

It was only released in The Netherlands.

Ever been to a music lesson and wished you could accurately reflect on your own performance individually as well as within the group? For the AHK (Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten), Skopei Digital created a platform that does just that! With the help of our creative, friendly, and intuitive interface, students are able to evaluate their performance based on three qualitative fields: Hearing, Seeing, and Feeling. The app was developed in about a week (!) with a team of three and is built with the Angular.js framework as well as Angular Material. For more info, check out the case study at Skopei Digital:

We Listen – listen to music together
HTML5, Socket.io, NodeJS, Heroku, SoundCloud API – April 2013
WeListen allows users to create shared playlists using the SoundCloud API and listen to music together – at the same time. It also features automatically generated genre-based playlist that any user can join. These playlists also allow users to chat. The application was built in one week, as a proof of concept. Due to lack of time, it never reached a production-ready status. The app was noticed by SoundCloud and I had a chat with one of the engineers that was interested in the technology behind it.

This website is Studex Benelux’ B2C website. It is derived from earpiercing.biz, Studex Europe’s main consumer website. The website has over 5.000 visitors per month on average and uses a relatively large infrastructure.

Ear Piercing Web App
HTML5, Bootstrap, Flash, One-pager – 2014
I have developed a HTML5 desktop-equivalent of the Ear Piercing app that is available on iOS (see above) for Studex Europe. The app allows users to try out studs before buying them. Users can take a selfie through their webcam, or upload an existing photo. Once the studs are pierced, the user can save and / or share their photo on Facebook and Twitter.

Petterz – Social network for pets
Petterz is an online social platform for pet owners and enthousiasts that features user- and pet profiles and timelines, media upload capabilities, a tip sharing outlet and much more. It was developed from the ground up, with a team of three, during my studies in Delft. It had about 5.000 users but showed not enough traction to continue developing the website. Someone wrote a nice article about what Petterz is and what it does that you should read if you want to know more about it.
