### MySQL Consulting
OlinData started off as a freelance comoany where Walter delivered MySQL consultancy remotely to companies requiring help. Walter started attending open source conferences to talk about MySQL and Open Source.

### Zabbix consulting

# Healthcare
In Holland, every individual pays for their own health care insurance. It's mandatory to have one. Once you come here and get a BSN you can use it to register to any zorgverzekering. A good Dutch resource for comparing zorgverzekeringen is [Independer](https://www.independer.nl/zorgverzekering/intro.aspx).
In Holland, every individual pays for their own health care insurance. It's mandatory to have one. Once you come here and get a BSN you can use it to register to any zorgverzekering. While you have 4 months to get a health insurance, it is suggested to do this as soon as you have BSN, so you will be covered. They will charge you from the time that you registered first in the Netherlands. A good Dutch resource for comparing zorgverzekeringen is [Independer](https://www.independer.nl/zorgverzekering/intro.aspx).
Once you have a health insurance, you need to register with a General Practioner(huisarts) in your area and then for any non-emergency doctor visit you should make an appointment with your GP.
