I am an experienced iOS developer since 2009 helping customers bringing their apps to the App Store.
I have approx. 15 years of coding experience in C/C++, including knowledge of the newest C++11/14 standards
A true software engineer is not limited by technologies or programming languages. Once you have the methodology and mindset, you can apply your knowledge and experience to new technologies.
Since I can remember, I have always been obsessed with computers. When I was a child, what most fascinated me about computers in general was that they functioned as a miraculous tool for creation. They were an exciting enabler of creativity in times when digital media was a novelty, a new form of art.
At the age of 15, I was introduced to the fascinating world of the underground digital art subculture called demoscene. This community cultivated and thrived on creativity. This environment was a great motivation for me right from the first time I got myself a computer, a Commodore 64. From a creator's point of view, that machine was an ideal platform for self expression: one could learn the computer inside-out, and go on a quest to write code, compose music or create graphics. You could create your own games, effects, demos, digital magazines, etc.
When I graduated from high school, it was self-evident for me that I would go on to study computer science at the university. And that's how I became a software engineer.
Since the beginning I've come across and familiarized myself with many different technologies. A non-exhaustive list would be: on the C64 I learned 6502 assembly programming, then later I learned Pascal, x86 assembly, later C, C++, Actionscript 3. In 2009 I delved into iOS development, learning Objective C, later becoming a big fan of Swift as well. But in my opinion, it's not all about programming languages or particular technologies. Once you learn the mindset and have a deep understaning of how computer systems work, it's only a matter of dedication to learn something new. What it all comes down to is being enthusiastic about your craft.
Since the beginning I've enjoyed many facets of creativity, from writing code to creating music, playing the guitar or taking photographs. The process of creation itself is an integral part of what makes me a happy person, and provides a sense of achievement in my life.
Software & Information Engineering via the CEEPUS scholarship program for two semesters as an exchange student.
Information Engineering MSc. After the third year I specialized in Application Development. During our studies we had a strong focus on natural sciences as well as engineering, general and applied informatics. During the last year of my studies, I moved to Germany to pursue a freelancer carrier and thus did not complete the graduation process.
