My name is Yannick Fricke, I am 27 years old and live in the wonderful city called “Braunschweig” in Germany.
Here are some facts about me:
How it all started
In my early days (around age 8) I was fascinated about computers and I thought: “One day I would like to know how to make applications”.
Still interested I lend some IT books from our local library with the age of 12
For sure, with that age you don’t know all the words, so you have to gain a bigger vocabulary.
At the age of 16 I bought my first own book for 50 € (that was my pocket money for a whole month!).
Visual Basic .Net was my first choice, because I heard from a friend that it should be easy to learn.
But sadly I lost interest in it because I didn’t understand arrays (now I laugh about that!).
Giving up? No way! After a short break I started to learn PHP. It was also at that time that I found a very nice mentor who helped me a lot and I’m very grateful for him.
I’ve been practicing PHP for several years and learned some other languages as well (which are listed below).
In my freetime I enjoy doing the following things:
- Coding interesting side projects
- Going to the gym
- Meeting my friends
- Riding my bike
- Streaming on Twitch
Languages I know
- German (native language)
- English (fluent)
- CSS + SCSS
Technologies I use
Continuous integration services
Software I use
- Linux (for development)
- Windows (for other stuff)
