My name is Lucas Walters and I am a fourth year Software Engineering student at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. Welcome to my personal website. I very much enjoy what I do as a student Software Engineer and I am currently looking for an internship. If you want to know more about me, feel free to scroll down and take a peek.
During my past projects I've had an affinity for creating a complex and efficient application structure. My experience has shown me that using an object oriented design produces a successful result in most situations which is why I effectively apply those skills in my projects.
I have completed multiple projects with the Scrum development method, this has given me quite some knowledge on project management. I also have experience using the PRINCE2 method and have effectively applied it during my past projects.
My earlier projects have given me enough experience with SQL and maintaining a logical Database. More recently I have been expanding my knowledge with Big Data projects. Using the Hadoop Distributed File System to create a reliable and scalable data storage environment.
Website Intercultural Business Solutions
I've been asked to create a website for the company Intercultural Business Solutions. Producing this website has given me a lot of insight with Web development and design.
