Are you curious about a lot of things? Do you like to learn new stuff? Are you fascinated by coding? My passion is to explore topics with a computer and to help people learn coding. This Patreon is about coding for fun, for learning and for exploration

During my master's level degree in computer science I had to suffer through many dry and badly written textbooks. The interesting stuff, if any, came always at the end and was buried in syntax and definitions (a notable exception: the Wizard book). Today there are myriads of tutorials on the web, but many are outdated, assume too much or achieve too little. My writing is different.

It is inspired by books like Douglas Hofstadter's Gödel, Escher, Bach, by Mondo 2000, Wired and the first computing magazines and by the writing of authors like Raymond SmullyanTero Parviainen and Eugenia Cheng. I have developed and refined my teaching methods as a University lecturer in 3 countries and through numerous workshops with many people who had never written a line of code before.

My goal is not to teach a specific programming language but to inspire you to use the computer in creative ways. I mainly use JavaScript, Swift and Processing, and occasionally a game engine like Unreal or Unity. Content will be thoroughly tested and kept up to date. Some of the possible topics are dynamic systems, artificial life, machine learning, robotics, media art, music, puzzles and games. I do not assume anything, just curiosity and access to a computer.
