I’m Tjebbe Lievens. A 26-year-old Belgian
software developer, tester, IT freak and owner of Made I.T.. I like to build websites and develop software. I have 100s of sites built for myself, friends and organizations. However, I have made extensive use of open-source software. I never did something back for the open-source software community. Here I want to change that. I’m going to work on several open-source projects. I’ll start some new open-source projects. I’ll also make some of my closed source projects open source available.
Previously, when I was younger (13-14 y), I dreamed of a large software company. TPWeb in dutch: Tjebbes Programma’s en WEBsites (in English: Tjebbes Software and websites). That would be the name of the company. As I maybe was a little too young and inexperienced to find a proper name but I was and am proud of it. I started learning HTML, PHP and everything that goes with this. I quickly built my personal website about my sports career. After that, I made my own web-based sports simulation game and a social network. What if I had more experience? And a budget? Maybe I was the Mark Zuckerberg. Unfortunately, both websites barely made users. I was too young. Pretty soon I wanted to learn something new. I started with vb.net and built my web browser. Later I learned C # and Java.
Now you can describe TPWeb better as Tjebbes oPen source Web software.
