I wrote my first line of code at the age of 10 by creating the simplest form of a Hello World Application within the Visual Basic Editor of Microsoft Word. For many years, programming was completely about the journey for me.
Starting off with Visual Basic and earning money by creating Access Databases for many clients was nice, but not the driving force behind my wish to know more about creating software.
After switching to the Mac, I started developing with Java, C++, and later ActionScript 3.0. After school I used my expertise in different scientifically used big data applications. My work was all about visualisation of large amounts of data and therefore creating the best user experience possible.
Although I do love programming, I chose a different path for my professional carrier. By becoming an educator I could follow my second passion which is sharing knowledge. Today and especially since the release of the iPhone SDK in 2008 my interest in programming mainly is focused on creating iOS Apps for educational use and finding ways to create software that can be used in classroom, at universities and by students themselves to make learning a great experience. Although my passion lies in educational software, I am also doing client work from time to time, which does not only include the development of iOS Applications but also the implementation of different iOS development trainings.
