Who am I

On the Internet I have many names: some know me as Twoot, others know me as Salad and others may even know me as milan44. My real name is Milan.
In 8th grade I discovered my love for computers and software development and since then there hasn't been a day which I didn't spend expanding my knowledge. I love my work and put all my effort and dedication into it. I always love learning new stuff and once an idea arises in my head I always try to implement it in some form of application. When I am faced with difficult problems I sometimes work even through the night, trying to solve/fix them.

In my freetime I fly planes in simulators or look at cat pictures. I love to travel around the world and meet new people.

I always try to stay up-to-date in a wide range of programming languages and also occasionally try myself at webdesign. My all-time favorite language is golang, but I also have experience in PHP, JavaScript (including NodeJS), HTML and CSS, SQL and Java. Working with linux based servers on a daily basis, I know my way around the shell quite well.

My programming carreer started with a 3 year apprenticeship at a Web-Development Startup called form4. There I learned the basics of web- and software development by going through all their departments. After learning web-development basics like HTML, CSS and JavaScript I moved on to the Backend side of things and spent most of my time developing TYPO3 extensions. I also got to learn Java while building Database-Management systems using technologies like Hibernate, the Spring Framework and Maven.

Finishing my apprenticeship, I noticed that TYPO3 wasn't really my thing so I decided to leave form4 and join the small but amazing team at Trustami where I have been doing full-stack web-development and python programming since about a year.

In my freetime I enjoy coming up and implementing all kindas of projects, including a wide variety of open-source libraries. Using Discord as a messaging service I've also come around to building many Discord bots. During my apprenticeship, I also aquired a bit of knowledge regarding networking and low level communication. I worked with the tor network for a while, building peer to peer chat clients with end to end encryption and similar applications which rely on the tor network.

When coding both at work or in my free-time, I always follow guidelines to make sure my code is easily understandable. Everything I build is as efficient and as well documented as I can make it be.
