I'm Florian, a 21 year old law student and self-employed software engineer from Austria 🇦🇹
I would like to work on projects that align with some of my interests:
Startups & Entrepreneurship
Security & Cryptography
Tech & Coding.
I deeply care about security and scalability of modern software solutions. In projects, I primarily design architectures, code backend services in Go, and do DevOps stuff. A few selected tools and projects are shared as Open Source software on Github.
Things I work on.
Self employed software engineer
Improving my customers’ lives with tailor-made software that automates or supports crucial business tasks
magic is an auto-parsing library and competitive coding helper package with batteries included written in Go. The library takes care of allocating and populating your memory.

...about my opinion, security, Go, system architectures and new open source projects
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 others 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 protocols, and implemented big parts of the initial server code.
In 2018 we open sourced parts of the code and started rewriting it to improve code quality and performance (game-server supports about ~10K players in a single round at the same time)
Title: Building a secure and scalable cryptocurrency exchange
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.
Grade: Very good with distinction
Untrusted code execution as a service
The simplest artifact repository manager out there. Really.
Stateless static asset versioning for very aggresive cache settings
Paramedic at the Austrian Red Cross
Since my civilian service in 2019, I have been volunteering for the Austrian Red Cross as an EMT ("Rettungssanitäter") in the areas of ambulance transport and emergency medical services.
Volunteer within the Covid 19 pandemic
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic I helped with transferring and providing emergency medical services for highly infectious patients.
Friends & 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 ❤️
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.
I started skiing with my parents as a small 3 year old child. Until today skiing in the mountains is one of my favorite leisure activities during winter. In addition, Austria has probably the most beautiful ski resorts in existence 🗻
