After finishing my bachelor of science in "Computitional Visualistics and Design" in 2016 I worked for well over four years as a Software Engineer at Daimler TSS GmbH in Ulm and Stuttgart. This month I started studying computer science with focus on software engineering at the HTWG Konstanz. So far, I really like it.

I'm building this page myself, this is not a wordpress template.
I consider my self a minimalist, this regards belongings, wording and coding.
if all I would do with it is display some really simple text and images?
This text is a simple html paragraph in a div, styled with 3 lines of css. Its simple to maintain and read, and it loads and renders very fast. It is a good example for the difference between simple and easy. It might would've been easier to setup wordpress (or similar) and just use a template. But that wouldn't be simplest possible solution, I would have to update wordpress on a regular basis, deal with licensing, support php etc. It is so much unneccesary complexity. This way I had to put some effort into it, but I could avoid complexity and gain simplicity, even though its (maybe) not the easiest way.

A Telegram Bot
Last update: September 09, 2020
My younger brother tried to build a telegram bot, that gives him some information about his schedule, so he started, but stuck due to some infrastructure problems. I attempted to help him, and then basically took over the whole thing. I used claudia.js with its deployment and bot-builder features, and deployed it to AWS Lambda. Document based persistance happens using DynamoDB. You can test the bot here (imagine you are still at school): t.me/MyScheduleRobot Now some functional details: This bot is a schedule bot, it is not a calendar. To make the difference, and therefore what it does and what it doesn't, more clear:
|Days repeat every week||Days are different every week|
|Timeslots repeat every day (🔔 rings)||Timeslots are vary a lot|
|Compare this||with this|
A short high-level summary is:
Use /help to get the detailed and always up-to-date list of things the bot can do.
