I am Peter Breuls. I write web applications in PHP, movie reviews and irregularly something on this weblog. Welcome!
Through my company Devize, I'm available as a developer or a consultant for websites or web applications.
I work as an Administrator at online community FOK! and as a Lead Developer at frontoffice supplier SIMgroep.

My Programmer Personality Type is: DLSC


And this is why:

You're a Doer.
You are very quick at getting tasks done. You believe the outcome is the most important part of a task and the faster you can reach that outcome the better. After all, time is money.

You like coding at a Low level.
You're from the old school of programming and believe that you should have an intimate relationship with the computer. You don't mind juggling registers around and spending hours getting a 5% performance increase in an algorithm.

You work best in a Solo situation.
The best way to program is by yourself. There's no communication problems, you know every part of the code allowing you to write the best programs possible.

You are a Conservative programmer.
The less code you write, the less chance there is of it containing a bug. You write short and to the point code that gets the job done efficiently.

I'm a web developer, so the way I interpret the 'Low level' part is that I want to know what my PHP code does (through profiling and such), what actions my browser takes when I do something with javascript, and that I (for instance) use a packet sniffer when I really want to know what HTTP-requests are doing (very handy for ajax debugging).

I actually don't think of myself as conservative. I like to try new stuff, be a bit adventurous, find new techniques to provide solutions, but in doing that I'll always keep in mind that the end product needs to be well-performing, well-maintainable and, indeed, consisting of concise code.

Biden - Palin

Uit het nieuwscomment

Bob Herbert (NY Times): "If Governor Palin didn’t like a question, or didn’t know the answer, she responded as though some other question had been asked."

De columnist noemt Palin 'a smiling, bubbly vice-presidential candidate who travels in an alternate language universe'. En hoewel ze niet zo'n trainwreck leek tijdens het debat is Palin inderdaad nog steeds een raar vogeltje in het nest.
