Hi, my name is Nicky Goethals, under the name EKINSOL I provide IT Consultancy services for businesses and individuals who grab my interest.
As a Technology Enthusiast, I thrive to keep myself challenged and I am always on the look for knowledge consumption. I take a keen interest in new technologies and enjoy following the constantly evolving technology landscape.
During my years as a developer and on other technical roles I have build a network of similar-minded people with various interests. If you require specific services which are not mentioned in my skillset then please feel free to ask.
Web and Managed WordPress Hosting
Under the brandname Host Vlaanderen I provide semi-dedicated and Managed WordPress Hosting solutions. Focussing on high-performance, strong security and strictly not over-dimensioning as many hosting services tend to do. It is mainly focused on dutch speaking audiences to be able to provide quality support while keeping growth at a steady manageable pace.
Technical Consultancy and IT Services
After 10 years of working as an IT Professional, I took the jump and started as a Full-Time Technology Consultant.
Technical Consultant - Complementary Activity
In my complementary freelance activities I worked on new skills, technologies and management of other developers.
All things development
A great development team partnered with an awesome Digital Signage Company. In consultation with Pegus Apps I made the move after the platform CITIE, for which I was the Technical Project Manager, was sold. Once the Due Diligence for the acquisition was completed, the group kept a place for me in the team.
With customers such as Belfius, BMW, Beaulieu and many more I had a lot of challenging fun. They are a wonderfull company to work at and to cooperate with. If you need signage solutions or any form of digital experience, these are the go-to people.
Senior iOS Developer / Development Lead / Technical Project Manager
I was missing the start-up vibe. Pegus Apps pioneered Remote Working in the Flemish region. This new way of working caught my eye. I loved it and never looked back to the old way of working! With some very talented people in the team it was a very nice experience.
When Playlane was acquired by Cartamundi, a world leading board and card game producer, our focus shifted to hybrid card technology in parallel with mobile development. Next to my lead developer tasks and maintaining our white-labeling Kids App Creator, I had a lot of fun with Augmented Reality R&D.
Software / Mobile Developer
My first Rodeo, I started as an intern, and what a great time we had. I learned a lot and received many opportunities with high-profile clients. To this day I am still proud of all the great work we did on the platform Fundels and the many projects we created for clients such as VRT, Studio 100, Sanoma media and many more.
I have always been a gamer, and now I could make them. Still doing some game development from time to time.
1991 Was the first year I clearly remember making my own comic books on the Amiga 500 at the age of six. Ever since I've been tinkering around with computers, scripting, programming, design and technology in general.
