Hi friends, I'm Axel. I am a Fullstack Developer and an Economist. I love code and I am also a nice guy, but if you doubt that you can just ask my mum or head directly to my. For some live-coding head to my . I graduated from Friedrich-Alexander University (Germany) with a B.A. in Economics. Always being fascinated with code, combined with my thirst for knowledge I came to Colombia (Medellín), where I completed the Make it Real Bootcamp to turn myself into a Fullstack Developer. I love to create things and I thrive when I have the opportunity to learn and improve my skillset. To gain a more profound knowledge of algorithms and programming concepts I decided to enroll again into a Computer Science major at the Motivation, persistence and the willingness to give a 100% in all the things I do is what defines me.
I am currently working as a junior web developer at sgalinski next to my studies. The Munich based company uses PHP, Typoscript, TYPO3, Git, vagrant, composer and a variety of other technologies. Since it is a completely remote company we use tools Trello, appear.in and Mattermost to stay connected and work together. Implementing SCRUM, we have daily meetings and Sprint meetings and are constantly in video chats, to productively work in team.
I was an intern at Masterchat for 3 months. Masterchat is a great chat-application that is built in Ruby on Rails. I was responsible for the implementation of backend and frontend features alike. I implemented new controllers, methods, models and migrations. In the frontend I implemented the complete landing page of Masterchat that you can see now on the website. In the backend I also worked with Rspec, Minitest and Capybara and I was responsible for writing almost all of the integration tests.
Realizing that I love to create things, solve problems and always learn something new, I decided to enroll again in the distance university of Hagen to major in Computer Sciences. The university is the only state universtiy in Germany that allows you to study in different countries and take your exams in the German schools around the world. It also allows you to study at your own rhythm while working fulltime. It is a normal Bachelor of Science programme in which you learn all there is to know about the fundamentals of Computer Sciences
Because I was interested in the workings of the economy I studied Economics and Anglistic at the university of Friedrich-Alexander. Apart from Economics my degree involved a broad variety of subjects. I studied critical theory and I also enrolled in spanish and philosophy classes.
