# About Bramus

Bramus Van Damme is a web developer from Belgium. From the moment he discovered view-source at the age of 14 (way back in 1997), he fell in love with the web and has been tinkering with it ever since.

With his company 3RDS he works as a freelance developer, tackling both the frontend (HTML, CSS, JS) and the backend (PHP, MySQL). His current focus is on JavaScript, React and React Native yet his love for semantic HTML and CSS will never fade. Not limiting himself to only part of the stack, he also knows his way around supporting technologies (HTTPS, DNS, Docker, Serverless, …).

Before launching 3RDS, Bramus worked at several web agencies in various frontend en backend roles. For seven years he also was a Lecturer Web & Mobile within the study programme Professional Bachelor ICT. With ±20 years of professional experience, he now plays along at the senior/architect level of a dev-team.

Apart from programming, Bramus can be found attending meetups and conferences such as Fronteers, Full Stack Belgium, JSBE, PHP Ghent, etc. – both in the role of attendee or public speaker / workshop instructor.

In his spare time Bramus likes to go Scuba Diving. In 2016 he became a certified PADI Master Scuba Diver, and in 2017 he became a professional dive leader after finishing his PADI Divemaster training (Certification #405966).
