Hi everyone, my name is Alexander and I am glad to welcome you to my website. Since I was a child, computers are around me. After nine years of mandatory school education I wanted to start working in that field. In my apprenticeship as a software developer, I learned a lot about software, technology and people. I also realized that I would love to share my passion for computer science with others and so I moved to my favourite city - Graz. I started to study computer science and German language/literature to become a teacher. In this wonderful time, I got in contact with a lot of great and inspiring people. Together with these people I worked on different projects in the area of software development. While writing my theses, I realized that I really enjoy developing new technologies that engage and support people in learning to code. I started with a Ph.D. in Computer Science to make programming as easy and engaging as possible. My research covers learning analytics, computer science education, and computational skills.
Teaching was always another passion for me and so I started to teach in 2014. I took different courses at the Austrian Red Cross to become a lecturer and since then I teach mainly paramedics and first aid. Besides that, I teach at the Graz University of Technology, FH Campus 02 and Pädagogische Hochschule Steiermark.
