Andreas Waigand

Developer, Playwright, Vexillologist

Hi there! I am Andreas (or 'Andy' for short). As you probably read above, I am primarily a programmer and developer. I mainly use C#, Java and Javascript. An excerpt form my CV is waiting below for your reading pleasure. However, I was told by my colleagues in marketing that a personal unique selling point is also necessary for a website like this. So, without further ado, here is a short list of my USPs:

  • I can talk at length about encryption, the county flags of Liberia, American domestic policy and the playwright Sarah Kane
  • I co-wrote a Paper on using adaptive interfaces to help children to better learn online, especially in developing nations.
  • I write theatre plays when I am bored. Only in German though. Finished my 10th play recently!
  • I wrote a MOOC in Javascript entirely based on CouchDB. CouchDB! Server, Database, Access and Account Management, everything! (Docs)
  • I love hiking! And reading. Not at the same time though.
