I'm Florian, a 19y/o computer science student from Austria 🇦🇹
I deeply care about security and scalability of modern software solutions. In projects, I primarily design architectures and code backend services in Go. A lot of my projects are shared as Open Source software on Github.
I won't leave the software industry, but I would like work on projects that intersect with some of my interests:
Startups & Entrepreneurship
I personally prefer results over long meaningless sentences. Therefore I suggest: If you want to get to know me, just read about my projects below and form your own opinion. Additionally, you can gain some insights into my personal life. If you are only interested in facts you can also check out my CV. Have fun!
Vikebot is a platform where programmers compete against each other using their algorithmic skills. They program their own player, a bot, which plays autonomously against the other bots in a 60 minute game. According to the results of these games Vikebot ranks every participant in a global ranking system, which is available for recruiting teams to find the perfect candidate.
As the Co-Founder and project lead, I designed the system architecture, defined the proprietary protocols, and implemented big parts of the initial backend.
In 2018 we open sourced most of the code and started rewriting it to improve code quality and performance (currently our game-server supports about ~10K players in a single round at the same time)
Title: Building a secure and scalable cryptocurrency exchange
Authors: Lukas Kurz and myself
Abstract: Implemented with a reasonable mix of proven software components and cloud-native products, this project shows a prototype implementation with a solid security and scalability foundation that can be used by future digital exchange projects of all kinds. It is compatible with the largest decentralized digital asset network, Ethereum’s ERC20 token standard. The primary intention and objective of this thesis is to build a prototype implementation which focuses on the fundamental issues of security and scalability.

...about my opinion, security, Go, system architectures and new open source projects
Untrusted code execution as a service
The simplest artifact repository manager out there. Really.
Stateless static asset versioning for very aggresive cache settings
Changing the way you think about i18n
Badminton Player and Coach ❤️
I've been playing badminton since I was a little child. After playing actively in national tournaments for several years, I decided to end my serious sport career and started as coach for the kids and the youth team of our local badminton club. Lot of fun and responsibility
Friends and Party
My friends and I spend a lot of time together - whether at house parties, festivals or just when we go to our regulars' table 🍻. They are my second family ❤️
Like many other Austrian children, I started skiing with my parents as a small 3y/o child. Until today skiing in the mountains is one of my favorite leisure activities. In addition, Austria has probably the most beautiful ski resorts in existence 🗻
Maybe you have seen me at the following events
Meetups in Linz
IaaM, Gopher-, Digital Future-, Blockchain-, Growth-Hacking- Meetups; Afterwork-Beers; etc.
I'm almost always here. Probably the biggest monthly tech-meetup in Austria
Regularly here for workshops and connecting with the startup ecosystem.
