The person

My name is Steven Vangeel.

I'm a freelance IT consultant with a passion for the Java language and OO design. Over the years I've built up a lot of experience in different fields of the programming language. Going from large teams with complex programs to small teams with sometimes less complex needs. Companies have always been pleased of my work and I'm going for nothing less. Feel free to have a look at my experiences and don't hesitate to contact me. I'm sure we can find each other.

Name explained

It's actually derived from the term 'trifecta'. On wikipedia you can find the following things:

In horse racing terminology, a trifecta is a parimutuel bet in which the bettor must predict which horses will finish first, second, and third in exact order.
In sports to describe scoring three points at one time (e.g. hat-trick), or succeeding at anything three times in three consecutive attempts, such as in cricket.
A situation when three elements come together at the same time.
I want to be the best in more than one area; my goal is to be the best in these three things: Those three things are really important to me, especially the last one. To me a consultant needs to be open to new technologies, new environments, different point of views, different work styles ... etc.

Anecdote

Why did I change it to trifecto with an ending 'o' ?
To me, I always liked the scene from the Dutch show 'het eiland' where 'bucky' uses the sentence :

'Synalco gogo go gogo'
I really wanted to say the same thing about my company and now I can :
Trifecto gogo go gogo !!!!! ;-)
