From 2000 until 2004 I was the founder and owner of Basic Webdesign, working as an independent contractor. I designed the graphics with Adobe Photoshop and wrote the HTML, JavaScript and PHP code with Textpad... a great editor. The website you are currently looking at has been developed using Notepad, for the design I used Paint Shop Pro.
PHP was my language of choice for creating an extensive CMS, called Orb Weaver. This CMS was developed over the course of a few years, and was the main engine for a number of websites, among which were Videoland Alkmaar, Midi Center and Forklift Center. Due to direct cooperation with StartMeUp, a hosting company of which I later became co-owner, Orb Weaver became quite successful.
