Mein Physiklehrer an der High School in den USA hat die Klasse immer wieder zu Wettbewerben mitgenommen. Einer davon waren die Physics Olympics an der Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau.
I have finished the text my PhD thesis at the end of August 2020. This meant that the scientific and writing part was done and from there on out it would be just formalities that I had to do. Of course there still was the defense, but first I needed to do a bunch of things in order to get there.
I've worked in research for the past four years, during my master and PhD thesis. And although I did research in physics, my main day-to-day work has been developing software. The software projects were either the large-scale simulation code, some post-processing code or the analysis.
In September 2017 I have finished my Master's degree in Physics. I was offered a PhD position by my supervisor and gratefully accepted the opportunity. During the master thesis I started to work with lattice simulations, supercomputer programming and was getting into it. Although I already did not want to persue a full career in science, I still wanted to do a bit more research in physics before leaving for the industry.
In the past years I have done a bit of programming teaching. Mostly at the university, where I have tutored in-person classes for C and LaTeX. On the side I have also taught people C and recently Python. In order to learn programming, one has to be able to experiment, therefore one needs to have a shared environment that allows to execute code. I want to introduce a few options that I have found.
Es gibt irgendwo in der Mittelstufe diese „gemischten Zahlen". Das ist der größte Bullshit überhaupt. Zum einen kann man damit nicht richtig rechnen und zum anderen zerlegt es die ganze Punkt-vor-Strich Intuition, die man bis dahin vorsichtig aufgebaut hat. Und zum anderen ist die Notation extrem unglücklich gewählt.
