Hannes studied applied engineering and got a master’s in science degree in 2013. Today he is a Web developer working for madewithlove. He tries to practice his speaking skills at meetups and conferences because of his belief that preparing a slide deck is the best way to thoroughly get to know a subject.
Besides work he loves to organize meetups and conferences. In the past he has organized meetups for MongoDB Belgium and grew a community of 340+ members and counting. He also organized an occasional LaravelPHP summer meetup in July 2014. Since then he has been running the php.gent meetup group. In the past he had created Ghendetta together with some friends. Hannes also loves to contribute to open source projects in PHP and a little bit of Node.js.
In the rest of his free time he joins his friends and family to eat and drink beers. To keep in shape, he prefers sports like wall/rock climbing and marathon running.
