Welcome to the website of Build Software. The company under whom I, Mark Homans, am active performing assignments on a freelance basis.
I am a motivated software developer and solution architect that delivers in a structured manner and where possible implements modern techniques.
I consider myself to be analytically strong, creative, focused on results and with a passion for the trade.
I'm looking for challenging projects on which i can look back with pride. I like to share my knowledge with others, but also learn from the experiences of my peers.
In order to write maintainable code I enforce the SOLID principles, implement Service Oriented Architecture where i can prefer to work from a TDD environment.
PortfolioOn the Projects page you will find a full portfolio of completed projects. There insights will be given to the diversity of programming languages, techniques and platforms.
"Ik heb Mark leren kennen als een zeer capabele ontwikkelaar, maar bovenal als iemand die zich sterk verantwoordelijk voelt voor architectuur, kwaliteit, zekerheid, onderhoudbaarheid en al die andere onderdelen van software ontwikkeling die zo ontzettend belangrijk zijn. Dankzij zijn inbreng hebben we met Nextens een aantal kwalitatief grote stappen gezet en tegelijk heeft hij het team beter laten werken."Aart Van Den Brink, Chief Editor Fiscal Software at Reed Business
"Mark was a lead programmer that took our product to a next level. Mark established a great relation with the other programmer and took quality to the next level. Mark is easy going and can communicate easily with the business."Robin Wahle, Owner at RW Retail Solutions
"We hired Mark in the first project when we were already halfway building the game. Usually it takes a while before someone new is working efficient when entering a project halfway, but Mark already delivered valuable work within 2 days. Mark is an expert in his field, has a steep learning curve and is eager to learn. The 2nd project we hired him he build this new game almost entirely on his own. Mark takes great responsibility in finishing the work he starts on time and definitely goes the extra mile when needed. Marks writes smart well structured code which is easily re-usable and is great to work with. When we have the opportunity we will definitely hire Mark again"Jan Peter Heetebrij, Co-founder and director at InThere
