Hi there, you can call me Sam. On this page you can find out everything about me.

me

TL;DR: I really love software development and at the moment I'm studying Applied Informatics in Brussels, Belgium.

Don't hesitate to contact me for general questions, internships, (summer) job offers, project offers...

Computer programming is an art,
because it applies accumulated knowledge to the world,
because it requires skill and ingenuity,
and especially because it produces objects of beauty.
A programmer who subconsciously views himself as an artist
will enjoy what he does and will do it better.

Donald Knuth in Computer Programming as an Art (1974)
