Amazing things Albert's made
I am the proud inventor and main developer of grlc (,, an automated Linked Data API construction tool that transforms any SPARQL endpoint into an OpenAPI specification by leveraging shared queries on the Web. grlc has an active pool of 3,200 users; Elsevier, TNO and the eScience Center among them.

I am also the author of midi2rdf (, an algorithm that transforms any MIDI file or MIDI event stream input into an RDF Knowledge Graph of interlinked music information. midi2rdf has been used to build the MIDI Linked Data Cloud (, a Knowledge Graph connecting more than 10 billion RDF musical facts from MIDI files collected across the Web.

I have also written compliant implementations of W3C Web standards, including CSV on the Web converters ( and Linked Data Notifications receivers and consumers (
