"Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious."
- Stephen Hawking
Welcome to my website! My name is Paul, I live in Aachen (Germany) and I'm currently studying Computational Engineering Science at RWTH Aachen University. I created CodeKangaroo to be able to earn some money while doing something I enjoy: Writing and improving code.
As part of my course at university, I'm learning how to write clean and functional code in C++, while trying to be as concise as possible. I am attending lectures such as "Introduction to High-Performance Computing" and "Data Analysis and Visualization", which help to keep improving my skills for this type of work.
Because of my exchange year in Australia, I was able to find a software engineering internship in the same town after I had finished my high school degree. In three months of full-time programming I learned a lot about what it means to work in a team, how to adapt to existing work environments and how to come up with creative ways to add new functionality to software.
