Maurice Fonk

Web Application Engineer

I'm a web application engineer with 10+ years of experience building everything from complex, high-traffic,real-time, web applications, to big content and media management systems. I have a strong, independent drive to figure out how stuff works, and learn new skills. I am fluent in many web related programming, markup, and styling languages, and have a good grasp of several others.

Languages And Frameworks

There are so many languages, frameworks and technologies powering the modern web, that even listing them is hard. The following is a collection of things I "do" on a regular basis.

Real Languages

As a bona-fide European, I have always been surrounded by many different languages. I grew up within half an hour's drive of three different language zones. Dutch schools have a strong focus on languages, and as such I have studied Dutch, German, French, English, Ancient Greek, and Latin. I am fluent in both English and Dutch.

Looking For A New Challenge

I recently moved to Southwestern Ontario to be with my lovely wife. I became a Permanent Resident of Canada late 2014. As such, I am looking for a new challenge in this region.

I am an experienced software engineer, with a focus on everything web. I am looking for a senior engineering position. Not shy of responsibilities, I have a strong, independent drive to deliver.
