I am a Software Engineer living in Berlin, Germany with a strong interest in front-end development.

Apart from computers, I am an avid cyclist and I love practicing foreign languages (hence me living abroad). Speaking of which, I am fluent in French and English. I used to know some Spanish. I recently picked German up.

I am a huge fan of comic books, The Walking Dead being my all-time favorite. I also read novels, mostly sci-fi. Besides all that, I occasionally play the guitar.

I write blog posts on this very website not only about computer science but also broader topics such as the environment, bikes or travels. There are RSS and Atom feeds that you can subscribe to. I usually write a few times a year. Feedback is greatly appreciated.

And if I'm in a meeting, I look stupid. So I decided to motorize it. I know IKEA already sells an electrical version of it with a motor, but it's 200 euros...

  3. Raspberry Pi NoIR camera module and IR LEDs

    Lately I've been looking into adding infrared LEDs to my Raspberry Pi, as I just purchased the latest camera module v3, in its NoIR (no infrared filter) edition. Basic knowledge required Physics courses in high school took place like forever ago, I basically remembered nothing. So I had to dig it up a little bit and study basics again (Ohm's...
