Personal

In my free-time I enjoy playing volleyball, tennis, table-tennis and various video-games. I am easily motivated to work on new projects and love open-source projects.

I use the revision control software git for almost all of my projects and publish them on Github. Also I tweet about interesting articles and fun facts in web design and development.

My skill set


Here is a overview of my growing skills. I'm far from perfection in any of these, but every day I'm getting a little bit closer.

HTML

I'm using HTML almost daily and it was my introduction to the IT World, when I created my first website.

CSS

As a web developer using HTML without CSS is like Ice-Cream without Cake. It's possible but just not that awesome.

PHP

I started learning PHP as my first actual programming language. As it is really simple, it was also quite easy to learn.
(Ex. Fredyframework)

Javascript

With Javascript I can add interactive elements to my page without reloading the page.
(Example. GlauserChristmas Card)

Git

Since I learned about Git and other revision systems I'm using it for almost all my projects. (My Github Repositories)

MySQL

The database management system which is often used with PHP. I use it with almost all my PHP Projects.

Symfony

A really popular and fast PHP Framework. I ended up using Symfony for on of my school projects and for a private project. (Fly)

Linux

I started using Linux at a very young age, but didn't quite understand it back then. I've been using Archlinux on my normal laptop for about a Year.

Bootstrap

This is a framework which can be used to get a head start in website creation. I'm using bootstrap to mock-up websites in no-time.

jQuery

Before starting to learn vanilla Javascript, I learned jQuery as it's a really simple and easy framework for beginners.

Java

I only used Java for school-projects (snakeY) and am working with it on a unfinished project (Songstack).

Wordpress

I've used Wordpress to create simple blogs for myself and my colleagues.
