About me: Stefan Cruysberghs

Stefan Cruysberghs, is the personal website of Stefan Cruysberghs. My family and I live in Scherpenheuvel but before I lived in Lommel (Flanders, Belgium). I am a pasionate software developer and have a passion for travel and photography. I already saw many world wonders, remnants of ancient civilizations, beautiful landscapes in high mountains, deserts and jungles. I met fascinating authentic tribes in remote places and could already enjoy the beautiful wildlife in Africa, America and Asia. I love outdoor activities and I also practice some sports (badminton, jogging, mountainbiking). In 2017 I became the proud father of Naomi and in September 2020 of our son Robbe.


I always took photos while traveling but my passion for photography really started in 2006 when I bought my first DSLR. Since then I have evolved rapidly in terms of material, knowledge and experience. As a travel photographer I cover multiple genres but I am particularly intrigued by fascinating nature and wildlife. Photography close to home is also very challenging because in this way I'm able to get to know the subjects really well. I want to show people how beautiful and fascinating nature is and try to emphasise that we must cherish and protect our environment.

I work with Nikon full-frame-system and crop DSLR cameras, several Nikon and Sigma lenses, Benro filters and Godox flashes and triggers. I'm using Lightroom Classic and Photoshop.

I have already won several prices in international photo contests, received acceptances in photo salons worldwide and some of my photos are published in newspapers, magazines and books. An overview can be found at this page. Several large 'fine art' prints also grace the walls of corporate offices and private homes. Contact me if you are interested in one of my photos.

Software development

In 1988 when I was 12 years old I started programming with GFA Basic on my Atari computer and a few years later I started giving all kinds of IT trainings to children and adults in my computerclub VJI. Over the past 22 years I worked in various industries ranging from from retail/wholesale/production, healthcare, home delivery to bioinformatics. I am a Microsoft MCP and MCTS since 2010.

I have a lot of experience with software architectures (REST, DDD, CQRS, cloud services, messaging, ...), design patterns, ALM, unit and integration testing, … Currently I'm and expert in C# & .NET Core, Angular, Visual Studio, Azure DevOps (VSTS), Azure, SQL Server, Docker, Entity Framework, LINQ, Web API, ... Some years ago I also developed hybrid mobile apps with HTML5/JavaScript/jQuery, Cordova for iOS and Android. In the past I worked with technologies like Silverlight, WPF, RIA & WCF Services, Office automation, PHP, MySQL, Delphi, Oracle, ....

I am currently one of the application architects of the successful scale-up UgenTec. In my role as application architect I take technical leadership to ensure that our applications are well designed, scalable, efficient, secure and stable. At UgenTec we make software that uses artificial intelligence to process data from DNA analyzes in oncology research or infectious diseases, but also for agriculture, food safety and animal welfare. Currently, our software is also used in many countries around the world in the labs that perform COVID-19 tests on a large scale.


The pages on this site contain information about some of my hobbies. All photographs are copyrighted by the photographer. All the applications, components and articles are put at everyone's disposal for free. This site is largely bilingual (Dutch and English) and optimized for smartphones and tablets. I developed both the graphic components and the programming myself. My first website was set online in 1997 and since that day I have tried to keep it up-to-date.
