Sebastien Schmets

Freelance IT Consultant

Autodidact, highly focused on customer satisfaction and highly motivated. Curious by nature, I like to discover new things and put them in application. Iโ€™m constantly reading technical books, papers and measuring myself every day against new challenges. My main goal in my job is to improve my personal knowledge to be state-of-the-art as often as possible.
