I’m 24 years old and 🎓 studying engineering science and computer science at TUM.
I spend a lot of my time working on 🌾 environmental science topics as a software engineer. My current focus lies on high-performance computing, automatic data pipelines, data visualization, and moving environmental research even more towards an open-source environment.
Together with a friend of mine, I am working on an online survey tool called 📋 FastSurvey (https://github.com/fastsurvey). Our main goal is not to be financially successful, but to build an affordable but great tool for everyone. Therefore we recently decided to pivot to an open-source and self-hosting model. The product is solid but the setup and documentation for self-hosting is not great - that is what we are currently focusing on.
Additionally, I am working on setting up a community called 🪲 Sustainable Code Collective (https://github.com/sustainable-code-collective) - still very work-in-progress. Its main goal is to help people who are not working on software full-time in their software development process. So many research/work fields require CS knowledge from people with a focus far from CS. Working professionally with code should not be an all-in or nothing.
A bit about my 🏔 work methodology: I work on many projects in parallel, most of my work being a long-term effort. I love to see codebases evolve. From my experience, pausing for a few weeks and revisiting a project with fresh eyes leads to healthy codebases and consistency among setups. I learn far more from long-term projects than from short-lived efforts because I am continuously confronted with previous decisions of mine and forced to refactor avoidable complexity.
If you want to collaborate on any of the topics described above, I am happy to hear from you! Until then, find and do the things that matter to you 😊
