flame Flame Software
2022 and ongoing

Flame Software is a Software-as-a-Service company that is developing a new communications app that intends to revolutionize the way we talk and socialize online. Our mission is to make the net more connected, more privacy focused, and more healthy for your mental wellbeing.

We are currently in our early development stage, where I work as the CTO to lay down the groundworks for this new app, which will be built using a combination of languages like Rust and TypeScript.

puppypride Puppy Pride
2021 and ongoing

I am the core developer of the new Puppy Pride social network since January 2021, and continue to support and expand it to this day.

The site was built from the ground up using the TALL stack in PHP (Tailwindcss, Alpine, Livewire and Laravel) and gave me a lot of experience working with PHP and every single feature within the Laravel framework and all of the ecosystem.

In the project I have gone through a large array of different kinds of features and business processes ranging from Docker to PayPal and from load testing with NGINX to backup storage with S3.

Warning: Puppy Pride is an adult themed social network for people into petplay based in England. Explicit imagery may be present. Due to the site's content, logging in is required to view the majority of its features.

puppypride Agro IT
2023 and ongoing

During my study's internship at Agro IT I developed a beautiful and user friendly web environment for their RVDM suite by connecting it to their newly made API and Identity Server.

The company liked what I had built, and wanted to expand upon it, so they hired me after the internship so I can transform the internship's prototype to something we can roll out and release to clients.

After that I am expected to build other modules of Agro IT's products into web environments so that their clients will eventually no longer need the older application-style programs.

puppypride Saxion University
2020 to 2024

I am a year 3 student at the Saxion University of Applied Sciences in The Netherlands majoring in Software Engineering. The study keeps me plenty busy, but now I am combining the study with a Minor Entrepeneurship to build a SaaS product at my new company Flame Software.

Even though the university has taught me much about the business life and how to professionally work in teams, nearly all my programming knowledge is self taught at home.

Beyond practical knowledge, I am also a teamplayer. I love discovering new ways and technologies that are proposed to me and like to share ideas and find new solutions to problems together.

About me

Hello, I'm Pascal, but my internet name is Mid. Nice to have you here on my website! I'm a 21 year old programmer and tech enthusiast from The Netherlands. If you want to know a little more about me, here are some details. :)

fursona fursona proxmox environment
đŸ–Ĩ Computer tech

I love everything tech, as was probably obvious. But it goes beyond creating software. I also built my own computer, and like to maintain hardware. At home I run a server rack equipped with a few Dell processing servers, doing my own research and hosting webservers, bots, multiplayer games and more using software like TrueNAS, Proxmox and Linux.

I daily-drive Linux as my operating systems out of a passion for FOSS and often tinker around with things like RAID and backups and getting all my favorite games to run.

đŸĻŠ Furry fandom

Being a furry is an important hobby and a creative outlet for me. In the digital world I express myself as Mid, he is an anthropomorphic cat with black fur and blue hair and some unusually large whiskers, and he's my main character. You'll see Mid in some places on this website. There are also Martin the pine marten, Seffy the protogen, Koffie the rexouium and many more.

🛩ī¸ Drones

I like to go out there and make drone videos and pictures with my DJI drones, enjoying nature outdoors and capturing its beauty.

More recently I've made some videos for Allroadevents.nl during a few offroading trips.

Virtual Reality

I love Virtual Reality ❤

I believe the Metaverse is already here, and it's been here for years. The reason people haven't realized is because the thing companies sell us is not what the metaverse is actually about:

VR is a world of the free where anything is possible. Entire cities erected from a few button clicks. Friendships and communities built on creativity and compassion. A place where anyone can be what they truly want to be without limitation. A place where humanity's light shines brighter than anywhere else.

And big tech takes those who already built the metaverse for fools, and sells us a future that is the same dull office space we're already dragging ourselves through in the real world.

So I joined these passionate and creative minds and started making my own worlds and communities, building a digital home for myself. The pictures here are some of the moments and places the world of VR has allowId me to create and witness.

đŸ’Ē Experience and skills

Because of my adventures in virtual reality I have gained knowledge surrounding things such as: Game development (Unity), texturing (Substance Painter) and animating (Unity Animators). Most of the avatars shown in the pictures are hand-made by me.

On top of that, I know my way around the world of VR. Through my years of running events where people come together and celebrate VR I know the people and where to find them, and how to use VR to create success and push new frontiers.

🌍 Worldwide

Despite the "Metaverse" seemingly failing, the world of VR is huge. Companies like Disney already take it seriously, and every year millions of people from all over the world come together in events to celebrate it.
