I am a mobile developer at heart, working on mobile apps since 2015. Ever since I followed the blockchain@home course at Howest in 2018, I knew I wanted to become a blockchain/Web3 developer. Since then, I have taught the same courses I followed, researched blockchain technology in the BLING project, and most recently have become the program manager of our Web3 courses. I am also focused on life long learning, most recently with a cyber security education.
