Personal note:

Hello, world! I am a computer scientist and if you are not (yet) super excited about computer science, I would like to change that!

Computer science is not only much more interesting and diverse than what many people consider as computer science (but what actually isn't computer science or at least is just a small part of it), but has also become a crucial part of our everyday lives. I would like to contribute to spreading computer science competences, digital literacy, and technical understanding in order to empower people to actively shape their own futures and the future of society.
