I am a programmer from Munich, Germany, currently developing LAMP powered web applications and all things C++.
I've been trying to master C++ since the age of 15 when I bought my first book about programming. Little did I know that the title "C++ in 21 days" was not to be taken literally. It took me a long time and many more books to gain a confident understanding of the deeper parts of the language.
My primary point of interest is software development using modern C++ to create fast and stable applications, preferably targeting unix-like environments.
C++ provides just the right balance between high-level abstractions and performance, resulting in a compelling choice for complex and highly demanding software like web browsers or video games. Further, C++ enforces no particular programming style, giving you the freedom to build your software in a way that fits your problem domain: imperative programming, object oriented programming, generic programming through templates and to some degree even functional programming.
You are in need of a passionate and ambitioned software developer? Then look no further :-)
Why you should hire me:
- I strive to write clean, readable and therefore maintainable code
- Writing documentation and helping others, as well as having the opportunity to learn something new are a regular source of enjoyment
- I am constantly challenging myself to become a better programmer
Just drop me an email and we'll work something out!
