Hobby backend programmer

About me

I've been programming since 2011. I mostly program personal projects in a variety of languages but mostly in Python and JavaScript.

During my free time, I have also acquired a deep understanding of the underlying architecture the languages are running on e.g. written my own bootloader and a small Operating System. In the last years, I've moved away from low-level programming and focused on security, frontend, and backend development.
I have competed in multiple Hacking Challenges by hacking-lab and most recently explored the world of machine learning.
