About Me


My name is Lorenzo Wijtman, and I'm a fourth-year software engineering
student at the University of Applied Science in Amsterdam. Since January 2020 I started freelancing to build experience in my work field and have been working on projects since then. Besides this I am also participating in the 10K-entrepreneurship program offered by the university of Amsterdam where we are devoted to the sustainable development goals while building towards our own start-up company. I'm a flexible team player who prefers a challenge instead of an easy task, When facing a problem, I don’t stop looking for a solution until it's solved. Being an internationally minded person, I enjoy connecting with new people from all over the world, learning about different cultures and seeing new places.

Tech Stack

Throughout my studies and work experience I have gained a good understanding in different aspects of software development, different technologies and tools. However, my skills don't stop where the text below does.

Web 

Both during my studies and my spare time I have enjoyed learning about full-stack development of web applications with different frameworks such as React and Angular.
I wish to further expand my expertise in front-end / full-stack web development and this is what I enjoy doing most of all.

Java 

Java was one of the first programming languages I learned and has set the base for the different tools and technology that followed. With hands-on experience with usage of Java for both client and server side applications I feel confident in Java application development.

Mobile 

I have a growing interest in Mobile Development due to the startup I'm currently working on along with 4 other students. For our mobile application we chose to work with React Native which we use in combination with Expo and other technologies such as Redux and Firebase. 

Databases 

Experience with database design and implementation for both relational and non-relational databases such as SQL, MySQL, MongoDB and couchDB
