2024 is here and now :)

2024, what’s cooking?

Slowly getting into the 2024 spirit. 3 projects coming to a close this month and looking forward to a couple of new smaller projects in between.

Redoing my whole website this year, so will slowly transition and move content …

A couple of docker projects …

… im currently testdriving or expanding upon!

  • MinIO / Amazon s3 replacement . using it for BOT storage right now
  • Meilisearch . mostly for doing large geo radius searches
  • Vikunja . self hosted To-Do app, always looking for ways to replace Asana in the future.
  • Leantime . self hosted project management. This is getting close to covering all I need :)
  • Bookstack . still my favorite, when it comes to documentation
  • Dockge . a Portainer alternative … not really, but provides easy simple stack management :)
  • Typebot . easy flexible bot builder, with a bunch of integrations. Did a quick WhatsApp bot last year, not perfect yet but really close. They iterate fast. Botpress would be an alternative, but the community edition lacks updates and regular support.
  • Rocket.Chat . has been my goto chat solution for years now, still going strong!
  • TimeTagger . time tracker for projects
  • N8N . workflow automation, just love it. NodeRed is the solution for me locally ;)

Still doing WordPress ?

Yes I do, either via a standard / multisite installation or headless. Not reinventing the wheel for everything ;) Have done some amazing integrations using just the Rest API layer last year.

Also still enjoying creating multi-lingual websites using WPML.

When it comes to templating, I am doing pure custom layouts using Timber, Gutenberg or Elementor. The client decides what he wants and I deliver ;)

Technology Stack / Programming languages of choice?

  • PHP . still my core and favorite language / Python . mostly just for fun
  • Javascript / NodeJS / HTMX / hyperscript . for the fun frontend integrations, still not a TypeScript fan ;)
  • G/O and Realbasic . for commandline, mobile and desktop
  • Pure CSS / SaSS . for all the pure style glory, still no fan of Tailwind
  • MariaDB / PostgresSQL / MongoDB / Redis / InfluxDB . and a couple of others ;)
  • NGINX all the way

AI Solutions!

Love my local open source stack. Tried paid solutions, but rather not spend money and enjoy the rapid fire of new open source models ;)

  • InvokeAI / ComfyUI . Image creation / processing
  • LM Studio . text based models

Have a good start into 2024 and enjoy coding.

I am a full-stack developer. My expertise include:

  • Server, Network and Hosting Environments
  • Data Modeling / Import / Export
  • Business Logic
  • API Layer / Action layer / MVC
  • User Interfaces
  • User Experience
  • Understand what the customer and the business needs


I love programming,  design and know my way around server architecture as well.  I would never feel complete, with one of these missing.

I have a broad range of interests, that’s why I constantly dive into new technologies and expand my knowledge where ever required. Technologies are evolving fast and I enjoy using the latest.

Apart from that, I am a peace loving guy who tries to have people around him that think the same.  I truly believe in the principle: “If you help someone, someone will help you, when you need it."
