I'm a research assistant at the Research Institute for Horticulture Weihenstephan, Germany, focusing on horticultural computer science. Different applications for horticultural businesses are created by a team of 3-4 developers. Most of us have a horticultural background combined with good computer-science skills.
My computer-science background
- Coding with: C#/VB.Net (Windows, Windows CE), PHP (Webapps), Java (Android, platform-independent, Webapps).
- Databases: MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite.
- OS'es: Debian GNU/Linux (for ~15 years), Windows - if it's not preventable ;-)
My horticultural background
- I'm a gardener. I learned vegetable production at a 55ha organic farm over two years (work + school). After that training, I continued to work there for some time.
- Later, I studied horticultural sciences, which resulted in an diploma given by an university of applied sciences.
