I initially started using Postman somewhere 2018 when I was developing my first simple API's. Postman seemed like an extreme difficult to use software and I didn't really use it that often because of that. Somewhere around 2020 I started using it more intensively when I had to develop some more advanced API's. It seemed logically to get some certificates since their free and look good on your resume.
The Student Leader badge at Postman stands for teaching to other people and helping them achieve their Postman Expert badge. Next to all that, it stands for initiative and teaching. I got my badge in 2021 when I gave my first guest lecture about API's and Postman at Odisee University of Applied Science to my peer students.Learn more
Gitlab was my first initiation to git. We used it at school to turn in our assignments. I actually switched to Github after 2 weeks of using it, but I still wanted to learn more about git, workflows and pipelines, so it seemed like a good investment of time to learn more about Gitlab.
Although I got my first badge, I wanted to take my git & devops skills to the next level and learned about CI/CD pipelines in Gitlab. This got me into how to build and automate development and deployment workflows.Learn more

My "first" personal website was launched using Netlify. Netlify is an extremely easy-to-use platform with a lot of great features. I wanted to learn more about it and decided to look-up some more, there I found a free certification called "JAMStack explorer".
The JAMStack is one of the most awesome technologies to me. Since I discovered it's existence in 2020 I've mainly built all websites on it. There are a lot of awesome tools available and not to forget, hosting them is actually very cheap since you're basically serving static files to the browser.Learn more
although I'm still working on getting Google Cloud Certificates, I wanted to provide some links to their certifications website. I'm still learning for the Associate Cloud Engineer as a Google Partner @vBridge, planning on getting the certification somewhere in 2022.
Google Cloud is the plaform I use to deploy all of my own websites and platforms, since it has an easy-to-use UI and has a lot of great functionalities. I would love to get a badge and learn more about this platform. Google Cloud has everything I need to build a perfect web-platform with all the functionalities I can think of.Learn more
