About

I'm a junior software developer who currently goes to school at Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Gymnasium, Bonn.

Projects

pong3D

A remake of the classic of all classics: Pong. The special thing about this version is that it offers network support, so you can play with your friends. It's made in Java using the GLOOP-Library and Network-Framework by the NRW school ministry.

simonknott.de

I made this blog as a home to my "Lernblog" and as an online portfolio. It's made using Jekyll and the beatiful Leonids theme by Renyuan. In the process of creating it, I learned a lot about the way jekyll works and about website hosting in general. My contribution to the open source project is the resume page you are looking at right now.

vplan

vplan is a viewer for the "Vertretretungsplan" of my school. It is a Progressive-Web-App and works both online and offline. It uses Preact.js and Material-UI.

magMerge

While working for MobileBeat, I often needed to render 2-Page PNGs out of a big PDF file. To make this process less tedious, I developed this small tool. It is written in Kotlin (for the Logic) and Java (for the GUI).
