As teacher and being responsible for public relations at the college of higher
education (period 2001-2003) I first met David. Together with David I realized an
intranet for all students and the staff. Soon I realized David was very reliable.
Moreover, when I had a new question or a new feature to implement, he was able to
quickly fill in these demands.

In July 2004 I decided to develop a forum for all Flemish teachers. Again David
proved to be the best partner to realize this. He was able to construct a forum-
environment that was completely as I wanted it to be. Even when times are very
busy for him, David still manages to find some time for our projects.

Kurt Meuleman, +3250394909, Teacher Adult Education.

Extra information:

Received two cerfticates of acknowledgement for exceptional efforts. Because of a
very active commitment to the school by maintaining the intranet for 3 years,
creating the external site and a web application for the school, along with voluntary
lectures about new technology.

I have been involved in technology since I was young, and this is still my driving
force every day. Designing and developing assignments and achieving a nice result
gives me great satisfaction personally.
