I am a professional back-end (web) developer
My name is Jorrit Klein Bramel. I am a 28-year-old Dutch national from a small town in Drenthe, a northern province in the Netherlands. I am currently living and working in Malta after having succesfully completed an ICT Administrator's course at Noorderpoort College in Groningen in May 2015: I graduated in June with an 'Excellent' mark.
I spend a lot of my free time on computer programming and working with various flavours of Linux distributions. I love to build web applications, research topics related to programming, penetration testing and explore innovative technological developments such as Node.js, Socket.io and AngularJS.
My hobbies include reading, watching television series and travelling. As physical activities, I attend the gym regularly and enjoy swimming.
I have built my own CMS system that I activly use for my clients and for my personal projects. I have also created both my own framework and my own online secure password manager.
I have worked with Linux since 2008 and continue to manage the Linux infrastructure both for myself as well as for my clients.
I have frequently been tasked by employers and clients to conduct various penetration tests to identify and resolve any possible vulnerabilities in their applications.
