I started programming when I was 13. C++ was the first language I came in touch with. Although I became profient with Java, I found my passion in the C#/.NET environment - something I prominently used in the Beercoin Demo app. Over the years I developed frontends as well as backends, be it on native or web environments with various technologies. I therefore call myself full stack developer.
I just handed in my thesis for a master's degree in computer science. I gained social and intercultural competence when I lived in Japan for one year and formal work experience at Darmstadt University of Technology and Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research.
Although I attended courses on IT security, the Beercoin project has been the door to a relatively unexplored world to me. I didn't knew much when I friend from childhood asked me to participate, but after having digged deep in the course of the project, I became really enthusiastic and fascinated by the possibilities blockchain technology has to offer.
