Something Fun: “I'm a very enthusiastic and dedicated software developer who enjoys doing programming at work and in my free time. During the first semester at Metropolia, when I was introduced to my first programming languages, I soon found myself doing not just the obligatory school assignments but I also came up with stuff of my own. I was very proud when, after a weekend of heavy coding, completely ignoring the outside world, I got my first algorithm to solve the toughest Sudoku problems of the local newspaper. I quickly got interested in the world of .NET and how you could easily build pretty much anything from web sites to desktop clients and rich internet applications.”
