Software is not everything, but it is a lot more fun!
Who am I?
One always believes it is easier if others answer this for you. This is my stage, so I have to and will give it a go.
I am born in Hamburg/Germany and grown up in a small town near it. My naïve young wanted to live in a big city, so I ended up Berlin. After some traveling as a student it turns out there are much bigger cities in the world!
Already as a teenager I was highly interested in Computer I thought myself QBasic on MS-Dos. Later I also programmed some apps for the Casio Pocketviewer PV-S460 (PDA with black&white screen). As a good, young and healthy teenager I really wanted to write video games, who doesn’t? Some old Videos can be seen on my Youtube Account 1.
After finishing school I served 9 months civilian service as an alternative for the military service that was compulsory in Germany.
I enrolled at the Freie Universität Berlin (FU Berlin) where I joined the FUmanoids2. FUmanoids is a project about autonomous robots that play soccer. On Youtube I have videos of very experimental software I wrote1. I implemented and wrote a bachelor thesis about filtering sensors with the help of the extended kalman filter3.
