About me

About Me

My name is Mark Vink, and I am a graduate student and software professional based in the Netherlands. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from HAN University of Applied Sciences, where I focused on core topics relating to software development. Since the software industry is constantly evolving, I make it a priority to follow all the latest trends and innovations.

I currently work at Topicus Zorg — a healthcare company where I completed my graduation project — as a part-time Java Engineer. My undergraduate experience has largely influenced my career trajectory, and I’m pleased that my studies led me to Topicus. As a Java Engineer, I maintain and develop a series of applications. Specifically, our development stack involves the use of such libraries as Guava, Wicket, Quartz, Spring and Hibernate.

In my work, I’ve become an expert in Mirth Connect — a messaging broker for clinical data exchange using the HL7 standard. Outside the workplace, I’m completing a master’s specialization in Cyber Security at Radboud University. The field is gaining a great deal of traction, and I’m eager to see where my graduate studies take me. In the very near future, I hope to gain more hands-on experience in the industry.

Despite my busy schedule as a software professional and student, I keep my skills sharp by attending IT congresses. In the past, I’ve attended PFCongres, J-Fall, TopiConf, EXA-IT, Black Hat Sessions and Laracon, among others. Please feel free to contact me with questions or for more information.
