My personal interests

When I am not coding my next project, I enjoy spending my time doing any of the following:

  • I love learning Korean;
  • I am watching my favorite eSports games;
  • I am brainstorming at conferences around the world;
  • And I am meeting more people and creating new opportunities.

Technical Skills

My best programming languages

I've worked with a wide variety of programming languages. For web applications I use PHP and Javascript. Whenever I need the most performance possible I obviously go with C++ and finally when I am building prototypes or working on my hobby projects I fall back on Python and C#.

Intern Programmer

Logistics C# development Process optimization
At Bauhuis I did my graduation internship. During my time there, I developed multiple applications ranging from a logistics application to a set of applications for process optimization. The logistics application was a web interface to better plan in and outgoing deliveries and the process optimization applications automated the manual labor of collecting and printing spare part lists of complete industrial plant drawings, it decreased 2 days of work into a single mouse click.
