About me

Before coming to web development, I devoted most years of my life to pure mathematics, which is one of my biggest passions and strongest skills. I worked at the university and completed my Ph.D. in 2014. Afterward, I left academia, but I still publish research articles from time to time. I also published a textbook on the field of my expertise. ๐Ÿ“š

After leaving university, I spent several years in animal rights and environmental activism and also worked as an IT admin in a non-profit organization. In this context, I learned the basics of web development and devoted most of my free time on it since 2019. I also observed many parallels between mathematics and web development and my problem-solving skills helped me a lot. Around that time I also created my YouTube channel. ๐Ÿ’ป

I got my first job as a full stack web developer in late 2022. I work for a company in the sports retail industry. If you are interested, see Skills for a more complete list of my web development skills. ๐Ÿงช

On YouTube and Twitter I go by the name Script Raccoon. My first name is Martin, but online in the context of web development, I prefer the name Script Raccoon. And yes, raccoons are my favorite animals! ๐Ÿฆ

When I am not sitting at my laptop coding SvelteKit apps, you can probably find me in the rehearsal room playing the drums. ๐Ÿฅ
