On this blog I happily talk about techy, geeky and (for me) fun stuff. I will be talking about all the problems / challenges I find in my day to day job, with examples, and how I have fixed those things. And maybe some of my 3D printing projects.

About me

Ruben LavooijRuben Lavooij

Hi, I'm Ruben. and this page is all about me!

Yay Windmills! (I did not really live in one)

Originally from Dordrecht, the Netherlands, I am now living next to the beaches of Bournemouth. We moved to the UK at the end of 2015, because my fiance got a Phd position there. So we packed up stuff and moved over. A new beginning so to say.

I found an amazing job as web developer in Ringwood.
There I quickly tacked problems with webservers and all kinds of e-commerce websites (mostly on magento). I especially like to do the administration of websites. making sure everything works and ties together correctly.

Normally a web developer has a portfolio, well I do have one somewhere, but most of the projects i've done have been a collaboration job, and can never be credited 100% to me. I'm no designer ;)
So instead I am filling up a blog, a blog full of techie, geeky and (for me) fun stuff. I will be talking about all the problems / challenges I find in my day to day job, with examples, and how I have fixed those things. And maybe some of my 3D printing projects.

It would be a waste to not share what I know!

I primarily work with Magento, and a occasional Wordpress project. I love figuring stuff out and am really good at problem solving. Some of the languages I am comfortable in using are: HTML, CSS and PHP. I know my way around in Javascript (and jQuery of course) and I love to fiddle around with servers, lemp and lamp.
Some people would say the above is a full-stack developer, but I disagree. I still have a lot to learn before I am "Full".

Now my English has improved vastly over the last 2 years, but is in no way perfect yet. so if you spot some terrible spelling mistakes, leave a message under the blog post, I'm still eager to learn from my mistakes!

Also If you are having problems with your site, or need some work done, do not hesitate to contact me for a quick chat. 07-493102199 or info@lavooijmedia.uk
As I can take some work on for the evenings and weekends!

Also a big shout out to my dad, Frank Lavooij, for letting me use some of his awesome photographs to use on my site!
