About Myself

Dyolzas is an alias that I use to sign-off all my projects. My real name is Wouter Duyols. I already knew I would become a software engineer since I was a kid. I was always building stuff with whatever I could find. It started with Lego and Playmobil and a few years later I was already trying to create something with nails, screws and wood. When I became older I realised that if you really want to create something useful that you need the tools for it. I thought programming would be the easiest to realize as I only needed a computer. I was 12 years old when I wrote my first website. At that moment I would not know that building that website would determine the path that I now travel.

Programming Languages

I am developing in Smalltalk at my current job. That's also the reason why I've put it on top of my list. Smalltalk is a not so known programming language, but I'm glad that I learned it. The syntax of Smalltalk is different than other languages and it forces you to program in a more abstract way. When I program now in other programming languages, I try to use the same structures and patterns as in Smalltalk.

A lot of my side projects are developed in PHP. That's why it's on the second place in my list. I learned it on my own when I was 14 years old and I never felt the need to learn a new programming language for web development. At this moment I'm still developing in PHP. And of course when you do web development you also have to know a lot about HTML, CSS, JavaScript and SQL.

Java and C were programming languages that I used a lot for school courses. My knowledge about these programming languages is good but no so good as Smalltalk or PHP that I still use daily.

Other languages that I have used for school are: .NET, C#, VHDL, Android, Latex, Visual Basic, Prolog, Haskell, C++. I did not put them in the list because my knowledge about them is really basic

The KWB of Zemst-Laar asked me to renew their website. A key thing for them was that they could manage the website on their own. That's why I build the website on top of the Drupal CMS.
