Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Steven and I like coding websites and software in my free time and during work. I am a certified computer science expert in software development. My programming skills include web development with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and TypeScript in the frontend and ASP.NET Core, Node.js, Go and PHP on the backend, application development with C# or Java and mobile development with Flutter and .Net MAUI or native Android.

I started programming at the age of 13, where I created my first own Minecraft server. If you were not able to program plugins with the Bukkit API in Java, you had to download plugins from third-parties which could interfere with each other and had bad customizability. So I started learning Java in YouTube tutorials and although it was a bit difficult in the beginning, I mastered it quite well.

When you have your own Minecraft server, you had to have a few other things such as a website or Teamspeak, so I started learning HTML and CSS. After I gained some experience in web development, I started learning PHP for the backend of the website. I bought some great books for PHP and JavaScript and learned my first backend applications with PHP and animations with JavaScript.

However, if you program things, you have to host them somewhere. I decided to rent a Virtual Private Server (VPS) where you have an own operating system such as Linux distributions like Debian or Ubuntu or Windows, but Windows was never an option because Windows VPS' were a lot more expensive than VPS' with Linux. So I gained my first experience with the Linux distribution Debian and installed a Minecraft network, a web server and a Teamspeak server. I rebuilt my Minecraft server several times because I never was satisfied with it.

A few years later, I am hosting my own mail and web server, coding a lot of websites, apps, programs, and even a few basic games. Programming really became my passion, although I never was good in math. And because of programming, I had to read and watch a lot of English content at home and began to love English, so I moved from a D in year eight to an A in my final grade certificate. But not only due to coding, but also through my divine English teacher to whom you also can be thankful because she endowed me a CSS and Python book, from which I improved my CSS skills to make this nearly beautiful website and learned Python for some automation including an Amazon Alexa Skill.
