During a 12-week music project in 2010 we have recorded and released 500 limited edition audio cds which are being sold through a custom developed cd webshop. From March 2007 to January 2011 (3 years 11 months) Student Assistent @ Student Assistent, assisting students during computer practicals on the courses "Inleiding Programmeren" (Java programming basics) "Online Informatie Systemen" (Online information systems), "Project Interactive Multimedia". and "Privacy en Beveilging" (Privacy and Security).

From March 2009 to October 2010 (1 year 8 months) Amsterdam Area, NetherlandsInnovation Specialist, Software Engineer, Developer @ Originating from his master study courses and the need of educational improvement on the VU in Amsterdam, Peter and his colleague Timen Olthof have completed several explorative researches into innovative technologies such as Actionscript / Flex, Adobe AIR, multi touch and mobile development for Android, resulting in clear experience documentation and examples to be used for future student projects.
The Android development project Peter did at the VU resulted in several small, widget based apps resulted in one Android-Market published application called "Xbox Live Stats Widget". This application, showing statistics for the xbox live gamer network using the official Microsoft developers API, was engineered, designed and implemented from scratch. In this process we have encountered several mobile development aspects such as third party API authorization negotiations, API usage and feed-parsing, Android Developer enrollment, Android-Market publishing, user feedback, error reporting and version updating.
Deep-diving into the world of mobile development resulted in a wide variety of challenges on different levels. After learning and comprehending the complex workflow of the Android framework, we had to deal with real end-users and used their (mostly harsh) feedback to improve the application and create a more stable product.
The clear usage goal in a unique market niche, close relation to the applications users, updates with feature requests and bug fixes caused the application to be downloaded over 170.000 times (as of 01-05-13).
