Get to know who we are.
Hi. I'm Wesley Portugaels. I manage. I support.
I was born and raised in Limburg, Belgium and computers are something that always interested me. After finishing high school at the age of 16, I followed various IT related courses which helped me to become a system- and networking engineer. In that capacity I manage the IT infrastructure of various homes and companies.
Over the years I've developed a passion for supporting and helping people. My overall experience is that you can not manage an IT infrastructure without educating and learning its users how to work with it. You can fix a problem without telling the user how you fixed his issue, but there is a good chance that the problem will surface again, rather sooner than later. When you support and help the user, leading them to fixing their own problem, he will have learned something and, at the end of the day, you'll both be happy.
Hi. I'm Vicky Verhulst. I design. I teach.
I was born and raised in West-Flanders, Belgium and have always been a creative person. In school, my favorite subjects were arts and music because those would allow my creativity to flourish. When family and friends need something pretty, they usually contact me (whether it's for advice or to actually create the thing they're looking for). Over the years, this has allowed me to continuously both improve upon my existing skills and learn new ones. When a customer wants a specific design, I won't stop until we're both satisfied.
Sometimes when you don't understand something, and finally manage to find some kind of explanation, you're even further away from home. You can compare it with going to the doctor: if he explains something in Latin, it will sound the same as Chinese to you. I find it both challenging and fun to teach people various IT skills, going from starting to work with a computer till learning to work with specific software and/or tools. I'll take the time to teach them, answering all questions they might have in the process.
