I am Leonard Niehaus,
a technology obsessed guy from the day I was born.
I have a huge passion for creating software which helps to make peoples life easier. As example: productity & management apps.
I started to have ideas and plan stuff as a little child with LEGO. I built stuff like car ferrys and roller coasters with functionality. With age 10, I built a straight ~20 meter rollercoaster track out of wood from a 5m high slope in my neighbourhood - put a cart on it and had a lot of fun.
I continued with a flight simulator, an alarm system for my familys place and many other cool projects.
With 14 I discovered software-engineering. I created a game-server and thought about web-interfaces to control game-related options, a desktop application which integrates with the game for a better experience and much more... . I learned a lot about networking, servers, Linux, ... and met a lot of international people over the internet.
This is how I discovered software engineering.
Now I'm planning online forums, tickets systems, ... and I have a lot of other ideas in my mind.
I am very productive and efficient when I work on stuff which I am interested into. I also love to work in teams to point out the best ideas for the best results.
Also I have a deep understanding in computers and many other technology related subjects.
I've tought many people how to properly use digital stuff, so I've studied the ways different generations think about and deal with this. This allows me to create software with the best user experience.
I have such a huge passion for technology, that I became one of those "crazy" people who have put a microchip in their body :P
Not only one, two different NFC chips in each of my hands, which I love to build projects with, like payment systems.
I work very efficient at all the stuff I do. Especially when it gets highly interesting & challenging.
I love planning and creating software. I do the implementation with Angular & Firebase.
Experimenting with different operating systems to run serving applications is something what I love.
Finding technical solutions to make everdays life easier is something I do daily.

Besides having a hard work ethic and being a good team player, I am also able to do the following things
Windows, Debian/Ubuntu, CentOS, ChromeOS, Android
I love creating PWAs with Flutter & Firebase with a backend from GCP
I am experimenting with machine learning APIs from GCP, as well as other products like Cloud Functions.
I always have a project in my mind and think about it all days. In young age I sometimes didn't concentrate on school enough because my brain was too busy with my projects.
I've worked with really nice people. Thank you for this awesome time!
As the Managing Director of Cititec Systems, I would like to say what a pleasure it has been to have had Leonard working with us. He is a very personable and talented individual with a hard work ethic. He is also a team player and fitted in extremely well with our staff and work environment.
I can't wait to have my school finished and dive into the life as a software engineer.
I worked for 5 weeks at the managed service provider Cititec Systems. I've setup machines, created a new website and started to work on a custom ticket system.
I'm currently doing my diploma to become an information technology assistant. This includes advanced knowledge in programming, databases, networking, multimedia, hardware, operating systems and electical engineering
DMI is the leader in archiving sensible data for hospitals in Germany. I was working for digital long term achieving by converting paper files into digital data.
I was supporting the team for tube quality testing by analyzing the test results and helping the team for the delivery of tube machinery
I've successfully graduated and received a secondary school certificate
Whenever I have time, I use it to acquire new skills. I spend a lot of time on Udemy and Codecademy. I mostly focus on backend web development. I also really love to take part at events from Google Digital Garage, as well as local meetups and hackatlons.
