A versatile, adaptable and to the point developer, with a practical "getting things done" approach. Getting pragmatic oriented results, while transforming ideas into reality.
Hi! My name is Martijn van Ark. I am a creative Software Architect / Engineer, and I'm very passionate and dedicated to my work. With 20 years of experience, I have acquired the skills and knowledge necessary to make any project a success.
Well-versed in numerous programming languages and environments for Desktop, Mobile and Web based development, making for a flexible and broad spectrum of possibilities.
What started as a hobby quickly turned into a passion. Now more then 20 years later I still greatly enjoy writing practical code to get "to the point" solutions with a "getting things done" approach
Short turn around's and quick prototyping allow for a pragmatic perspective in development. This enables me to use my creativeness to bring out amazing and sometime unorthodox solutions and results
Being able to let go of routinely standards and practices provides a fresh approach to development cycles. This "out of the box" way provides off beat an individualistic results and solutions.
Software development, App development and Web development. Whether is just partial or a project in its entirety, anything is possible. Making for flexible and multifaceted applicability of my abillities
ScanID is, of sorts, a partial re-establishment of VDE ID Solutions. Did a complete re-evaluation, redesign and rewrite of previous software, resulting in the completely new DocviewStudio software packages.
Responsible for the Check4ID App's for Android and iOS, as well as Check4ID NOW. This includes OCR en NFC reading of identity documents for Android and iOS.
Created the ScanActive.com Online platform which powers extended features of Check4ID and other applications. Consisting of frontends, backends and API's, both public and private.
All elements can communicate and or enable their users to integrate reading results in their own applications.
Performed the initial development regarding hardware and software for ICAO based identity document scanning and processing.
This includes communication with different types of devices and protocols as well as ICAO compatible NFC chip access and reading of e-Passports, e-ID 's and e-Drivers licenses.
Further development of Datamatrix algorithms as well as the PC Based ValidateDMX Software to process the decoding of Datamatrix codes for extended validation / verification according to various international standards and specifications.
Also did R&D and wrote software for managing and configuring the company's unique build barcode scanners (both fixed and portable).
R&D and software/algorithm development for multi platform and embedded decoding of 2D Datamatrix Symbols. Specifically with regards to Direct Part Marking symbols on hard to read surfaces and their validation / verification.
Whenever time and circumstances permit I will take on freelance and/or voluntary passion projects ranging from software / web development to graphics oriented projects, as well as electrical engineering.
"Technische Informatica" is an IT discipline and a branch of technology that deals with everything that lies on the border of electrical engineering and IT. Computer technicians use principles from electrical engineering, software design, and hardware-software integration.
Technical computer science focuses more on the mathematical and physical foundations of computer science.
"Werktuigbouwkunde" or mechanical engineering is an engineering branch that combines engineering physics and mathematics principles with materials science to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.
After 2 years i internally transferred to Technische Informatica
