About

I’m a software developer based in Belgium, currently I’m mainly working with Drupal to build web platforms. I’ve been doing web development professionally since 2008 and while my current focus is very much on Drupal, I’m always interested in new technologies.

I am a strong believer in open source and I try to contribute as much time / energy back to the community as I can. This belief in open source led me to speak at events all over Europe, mainly about Drupal’s Search API module.

You can find more around the web, you can usually find me as borisson on the internet. On places where that name is already taken, I go by botchcake.

I’ve been to a couple of conferences over the last couple of years, you might have seen me at one of the following:
