About Me
About Me

Having graduated from the broad-based programme of Industrial Engineering and Management at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, I am currently studying Software Engineering of Distributed Systems at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. I am addicted to programming and you can find an extract of my coding skills on my GitHub page.
My strength is in backend development in Java (Spring). Nevertheless, I am also familiar with frontend development, mainly in Vaadin Flow, and Python development in the framework Flask.
Many people have highlighted my inquiring mind and ability to learn fast as my strengths and I would gladly learn new programming languages and frameworks for you.
