Hey! My name's Max Korlaar.
I am an ICT & Media Design student at Fontys School of Information and Communication Technology, graduation intern UX & development at the Dutch National Police's Innovation Lab and web developer at Scholieren.com. This year is the last year of my studies. Through the years I've mainly been busy writing interactive web applications, but lately I try to focus more on the UX of the products I build.
In the third year of my education I did an internship at the digital media agency Freshheads in Tilburg, where I helped to create cool digital products for their customers. Since before my studies I have been taking care of the front- and backend of Scholieren.com's website of the same name, together with my colleagues. If you're curious to know how we do that: With Laravel, Vue, SASS and a touch of our own young mindset.
During my graduation internship at the Dutch National Police's Innovation Lab, I'll be working on designing, developing and testing an data input application for police information officers and analysts allowing them to refine their data in a more efficient and user-friendly manner. The main goal of this application is to make the refined data available to the iRoom – another project of the Innovation Lab – in a transparent and consistent manner.
Within my studies at Fontys ICT I've been given the opportunity to become a member of the Delta honours programme – a replacement for the regular curriculum that offers students more challenging and often larger assignments from various companies with real problem cases. Within Delta, I've taken part in exciting projects, such as the GLOW light festival in Eindhoven, the Paaspop music festival in Schijndel and the Digital Excellence Platform, an open-source platform for exchanging concepts, projects and knowledge within Fontys University of Applied Sciences.
