Plan prediction []

For the raster project a main selling point will be the automatic prediction of future scheduling. There are two major schools of thoughts to go with that I know of. Constraint satisfaction solving and data driven approaches (use statistics).

First of all the most straight forward approach is to use …

Jakartian Christmas []

Unfortunately Jesiska couldn't make it to Australia in time for Christmas. Therefore I decided basically last week to go to Jakarta instead! I personally don't care much about Christmas, but I thought the office would be closed during this time. (Many companies close in the Netherlands for sure during this …

Jappie lives with kangaroos []

I've been living in Australia for well over a month now and I really enjoy it! The first two weeks were quite a wild ride, looking for my first job and finding a permanent place to stay.

I had 3 interviews appointments prepared before arriving. I finished them in the …

Work work work, ya ya ya []

Last Wednesday I started my first job at Open Learning. It has been interesting, I know for a fact I practically up till this point contributed almost nothing to the company. This is to be expected according to reddit. I did ask a lot of questions since I was able …

What do you think about jakarta []

Now I've finally arrived in Australia, its time to reflect upon my expectations I had for Jakarta. Actually.. While being in Jakarta I got asked this question quite frequently: "What do you think about jakarta?" and I just stood there with no answer. This post is an attempt to answer …

Beginning of eternal summer []

Right now I'm in the airport waiting to go to Jakarta. It's really weird what I'm doing I think, few people actually travel alone by plane, but in my case I'm just sort of emigrating and finding a job in a foreign country.

I want to try and do an …

Journey to Oceania []

Wednesday 2017-08-16 I'll leave towards Oceania. First I will go for a month to Indonesia, having a little holiday and meeting my almost girlfriend. Then I will move on to Australia to do a "working holiday", where I hope to do my profession, as a software engineer or work in …

My thesis []

I'm done. The master in AI is complete. I finished the thesis about adding `Jungian personality in a chatbot'. In this blog post I will give a summery and some comments from a programmers' perspective that just don't fit in a thesis. For example, the implementation are not at all …

Website changes []

I recently made a lot of changes to this website, they aren't big changes but the devil is in the details. I made these mostly in support of writing about my thesis as a blog post. I for example moved to SVG images because I recently fell in love with …

Making money with foss []

In this blog post I will discuss how to make money with open source software. Why do you care? Especially the free software variant is consumer friendly. (note that these consumers maybe businesses too), however for developers trying to make a living of writing such software is difficult. Which is …

Tool survey []

Some time ago I made a blog post about thesis writing tips. However while writing that a large part started to be about text editing tools and version control. To keep the thesis writing tips post more focused I postponed writing about that. This post treats my tools of choice …

Kamehamaha []

I just had the weirdest idea for a comic. Normally I don't even like this kind of humor but this idea just cracked me up:

So I actually made this one last week, but I thought it would not be appropriate to post on my website. Then I realized how …

Comparing tax in different countries []

Soon I will be graduating from my masters in AI. However since I was planning to go abroad I wanted to see how much worse or better taxation laws are compared to my own country (The Netherlands).

For starters we will compare with the eastern neighbours (Germany). Scale 3 has …

Optimus time! []

Using gentoo is a bliss most of the time. The package manager portage is one of the most advanced managers that I've ever used. Last week I encountered how much better it is than for example apt, when my old laptops power supply burned out and I had to resort …

Thesis writing tips []

So I recently started writing my master thesis and looking at some of my fellow master students their work I realized that perhaps many people have trouble with managing references, quality control and keeping motivated.

In this post I'll explain how I managed to do it, most of these ideas …

Deployment and todo's []

Yesterday I deployed the website, to my terror it wasn't responsive on mobile devices (adapt to screensize). So with this post I fixed that, by replacing the basic font-size specifications from small to 1vw (everything else was em). The rest of the site already used percentages. The site needs to …

Website Launch []

So this is the post where I'm launching this website. I finished the css mostly as a beautifull CGA theme. In this post I'll discuss my decision making process.

Why make a site?

As an extension of my youtube account I will use this website, mostly for subjects I can't …

Second post []

Yeah, I needed two actually to make sure everything looks good.

So I guess I can type lots of information here.

I wonder how long it will continue..

Quite long acutually.

Well, that's fine. I'll just think off more spaced out words!

Damn I need to type so much before …

First post []

So I'm trying to setup this website and to do this I need some filler text. Some people would make prommises about putting something up every week or so. But I don't wanna do that because I hate chores, so this may as well be a huge waste of time …
