About Me

Hi, I'm Alexander or Alex for short. I am currently studying Computer Science at JKU in Linz. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, spending time with friends and trying to learn and expand my knowledge of technical skills.

More About Me

I'm a programmer who is passionate about programming and I love to learn new things. I'm also a fan of playing strategy games and pretending like I'm a gourmet chef at home.
Next to studying I also work as a tutor at the Institute for System Software (SSW)

Before I came to university I attended HTL-Braunau in "Elektronik und technische Informatik" with a specialization in "Mobile Computing & Software Engineering". There I learned the basics of computers and programming and continued to expand my knowledge at JKU in the Computer Science Bachelor.

Currently, I'm pursuing a Master's degree with a focus on Software Engineering and other bits and pieces that I find interesting.

Furthermore I like to learn things by myself or by doing some group projects.
