About

Hi, I'm Marc - DevRel Lead at WeAreDevelopers where I am the link between the company and developers. I make sure that all our engagement and events with the community is well thought-out. This goes from social media engagement to helping to organize in-person events e.g. program directior of a 10k attendees tech conference.

I am also a full-stack web developer, enthusiastic about Vue, Nuxt, Node - but I am interested in all kinds of technology. This, I don't do full-time anymore - just on contract basis.

I am also one of the co-organizers of BELvue, a Vue.js meetup chapter in Belgium.

Hobbies

Sometimes I still write code as a hobby (like this website you're currently looking at).

In the beginning of 2022 I started learning how to play the piano. I am not an advanced player, but I feel comfortable with the basics. I do this for myself because I like the sound of the piano.

The hobby that currently takes most of my time is aviation. In September 2022 I started my journey to become a private pilot. I am currently in ground training (theory courses) and I started my practical lessons not so long ago. I also created an Instagram account to document my journey, in case you're interested.

When the weather is nice, I sometimes ride my OneWheel since I find it's a quite relaxing thing to do.
