About Me

A good day, dear reader,

I noticed that my activity on this forum increases as the time goes by. Therefore (for the ones who are interested) I'll give you an overview of who I actually am.

Current status
I am currently a 4th year Aerospace Engineer, who loves programming. I already acquired my Bachelors degree and continue pursuing my Masters degree in the Control and Operations track, the Control and Simulation profile and the Navigation and Guidance subprofile. A long story short, currently I am studying automated flight control systems (and I am not talking only about the conventional control theory) and I plan to specialize on UAVs, as I believe these have the future.
In addition, I am currently following some extra courses at the Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science. What I actually like the most from those courses are the implementation and designing data structures and algorithms. This means I am quite fond of (and this also one of my stronger side in each OOP related language) the design logic of a program. However, I have to admit that I am not too specialised with GUI related aspects of programming...

Next to my passion of for engineering, I am also quite broad oriented. I take interest in reading (especially in behavioural economics. Wondering why commercials are always following the same recipe? That's the field of behavioural economics), writing poetry (mostly in Dutch, but I can write in English) and I even have interest in economics and/or econometrics. However, I still love what I do and that's engineering airplanes with a bit of programming next to it.

Programming track
I started with JAVA programming during the first year of my study. Although the course was very basic and the programming basics were slightly touched, I got interested (addicted might be a better word). I started experimenting, dealing with Exception handling (we skipped this chapter back then) and my programming skills were steadily growing. But I decided to learn C# too, after a lot of thinking what to learn next. Meanwhile, I got the basics of Matlab and Maple (both being more of a scripting language, instead of an OOP related language), as both languages are used quite often at my university. But I still have to admit that Maple is a terrible, terrible language! The program is good for on the go calculations (like, need to know the integral of a massive function? Maple will do the maths for you), but a real nightmare when you need to write a script... I still get nightmares when I think about it.

Developing programming skills is a nice aspect, but I am also using it in daily life. Currently, I am working as a C# programmer at a company which programs addins for Autodesk products. Although I am quite proficient with the languages I know, I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go.

And I guess that's it about me :)

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to PM me ^^
