Point Productions is the corporate identity of Egbert van der Wal, software/data engineer and machine learning enthusiast from
the north of the Netherlands.
Are you looking for a (big) data engineering expert,
programming wizard or machine learning consultant? Look no
I started programming computers when I was 6 and never stopped.
During my AI studies I acquired a solid theoretical background
and have been professionally working in software and data engineering
for over ten years.
AI & Machine Learning gets me going. I graduated on reinforcement learning
in robotics and have since been working on computer vision, natural language processing
and evolutionary algorithms.
Processing large volumes of data from various
sources is a challenging but satisfying area of
expertise. I did batch and streaming processing and have
experience with Scala, Spark, Kafka, Beam and more.
I am a certified Google Cloud Data Engineer.
Running in the cloud unlocks virtually unlimited computational
power and storage. I know how to work the magic of App Engine,
Dataflow, Cloud Functions and others on Google Cloud Platform.
Together with my team we developed an autonomous robot for elderly care in a start-up.
My main focus was on behavioral modelling, human machine interfaces and video processing.
The software runs on top of the Robot Operating System (ROS).
Building websites and apps in Java or PHP for back-end and
Ranging from simple websites to complex webshops, from
customer portals to psychological research or adaptive matching systems,
nothing is out of reach.
I am available for long and short term projects in any of my expertises. I can be a flexible part
of your team or work independently on projects from my own office. Interested?
Contact me and we can meet up and discuss your interests over coffee.
My working area ranges roughly from Groningen to Amsterdam. For the most interesting projects,
distance is hardly a factor in the decision.
