Tobias

FULL STACK DEVELOPER

Since a young age I was already probing and trying out programming techniques to aid me in my day to day life. This combined with a passion of games, websites, futuristic styles, and the patterns behind coding gave me unique perspective on programming. Wanting to go even deeper into these aspects I focused on the building blocks of technology and studied Electricity and Electronics. Later I returned to the programming scene to deepen my skill towards more flexible and reusable aspects of programming, combining the design principles surrounding these theories to create working applications. In 2017 I started working at Hailforge, supporting and encouraging me with time and space to develop these skills even further.
