“Nothing is impossible. Not if you can imagine it.”

—Professor Hubert Farnsworth

I’m a passionate Python programmer and software engineer at energy & meteo systems.

Career

My programming career started with HTML and PHP. I created Halo Orbit, which became — by a lot of work and passion — the biggest German-speaking Halo fansite at that time.

I studied computer science with a focus on ecoinformatics and graduated with a diploma (the German equivalent to a master’s degree). During my studies, I learned Java, improved my PHP skills, tried C / C++, and in 2008 ultimately found Python, which I instantly fell in love with.

After my studies I worked as a scientific assistant at OFFIS in Oldenburg, Germany. My work centered around Smart Grid simulation and the development of mosaik.

I was co-founder of the OFFIS spin-off Particon before I found my new home at energy & meteo systems.
