My coding story

I always wanted to learn programming and since beginning of the year 2016 I make it for real.


First I started to learn some Ruby, because a lot of people told me, it is a good way to start coding. I am still going to the weekly meetups, learning every time something new and enjoying the great community.


Then I thought it would be nice to look at mobile app development. I attended an Android study jam and created my very first own app from scratch. After presenting it my app got a price for being one of the best three apps from our study jam.

Summer School

Right after that I went to a summer school from the University of Bremen, where I could dive deeper into coding, since I am having so much fun.

Career Foundry

And now in October 2016 I am learning how to programm in a professional way with the web development course from Career Foundry. This feels like a very exciting journey.


I am really excited to show off my skills in programming on this website! I am learning how to build static, responsive and interactive websites. I am going to build them with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. Looking forward to dive deeper into coding!

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out my curriculum vitae

Here are all the questions you always wanted to ask a web developer*:

And of course you will find the answers here as well.

Knowing the skills to develop my own webpage is like owning digital super powers. I have always felt that I do my best job and that I am happiest in my work when I'm being challenged. In an industry like this, with new tools, frameworks, and standards coming out every now and then, it is easy to feel that way. I think the key to be satisfied with the job is to always be learning, and I know I wil never run out of things to learn here.
Since I am dependable, self-motivated, cooperative, and an effective communicator, I work best on a team.
One of the basic features for developing great websites is a code editor. I really like to use Sublime text, since it is well-designed and efficient. Another great help are the Google Developer Tools in order check my code, for example to check and optimize the loading flows. Last but not least it is very important to have a good version control system like GitHub.
I think it is important to have both: a job I love and like to go to creating awesome websites, a spare time I could spend with lovely friends and always learning something new. Also I guess both areas are deeply connected to each other: the work shapes the life, and a healthy balance will keep me inspired for both.
I would like to get to know better JavaScript and jQuery, also dive deeper into understanding CSS classes and what I could do with them. For my home place I am going to build a media server using Rasperry Pi. After all I am generally interested in robotics and curious to learn more about that field in my free time down the line.
I loved to watch the last Star Trek movie. Especially the character Jaylah impressed me alot. When it comes to books it is really hard to decide, because I love reading and normally I read more than one book at a time. But one I can definately recommand Bronnie Ware: The Top Five Regrets of the Dying. Despite of the depressing title it is a very encouraging book to look at the important things in life.
