About me and this blog
As of writing this ( ago) I am 17 years old and will graduate from high school in June. If all goes well, I will be studying Computer Science after that. I am planning to blog frequently to write about my career progress.
I started programming when I was in 7th grade. It was an Arduino Project for the German competition “Jugend Forscht” (youth researches), in which me and my friends placed second in our State.
Unfortunately, I took a larger break after that and thus didn’t progress in my programming journey. Just about a year later, I looked into winforms, because I wanted to create some graphical applications. When I wanted to enter the mobile space, I started with Dart & Flutter, which is also what I used to publish my apps at the time. My favorite one: Labelcheck, the result of my school research on Neural Networks.
While I took 3 years of the Computer Science course at my school, it wasn’t really what I expected. First we were learning Java, like this:
To be honest, the first two years didn’t teach me anything new. In the last year, though, we focused on relational database systems and automaton Theory, which were both new concepts to me.
