About Web Duck
I am Michel Van der Meiren, a veteran Web developer with over 20 years of experience building cutting edge websites and web applications. In my spare time, I'm also an active musician.
I started building websites in IBM Notes/Domino, then called Lotus Notes/Domino. I maintained a then internationally liked technical blog covering web development on this platform. After its decline, I had to look for other solutions, both in my day job as for my personal use. So I started as a UX designer for other platforms as LifeRay (Java) and MS Sharepoint (dot net). For personal use, I started learning PHP and WordPress.
My hobby horse is performance. With the website obesity crisis in mind, I am even more keen on working out web solutions that render super fast. I'm talking milliseconds rather than seconds here... I will be very happy to share my thoughts and methods in the blog posts to come.
