My name is Andreas Schmidt. I am a 2nd semester master student of Computer Science at Saarland University. In addition to that I am a Software Developer and a major amount of my spare time is dedicated to voluntary work for Deutsche Lebens-Rettungs-Gesellschaft (DLRG). Finally, I also enjoy dancing, reading and listening to all kinds of music.

Education & Work


Back in 2005 I first got in touch with web technologies, which grew up since then (much like I did). So HTML, CSS and JavaScript were my first "programming" languages and I still use them today.

Starting in 2010 I spent more than two years with C# as my primary programming language and XAML for desktop user interfaces.

In 2012 I also started with MATLAB and Mathematica to complete university tasks.

Around May 2013 I discovered node.js and now use it for university projects and my research assistant work. This, together with developing web and mobile applications, broadened my knowledge of JavaScript as a programming language.

I am a huge fan of Visual Studio and use ReSharper for all kinds of refactoring.

Here is an abridged list of the textbooks I read over the last few years. I enjoyed reading them very much, so I recommend them wholeheartedly. The list is ever growing and updated from time to time. (alphabetical order)


Since December 2004 I am a member of DLRG. From 2004 to 2009 I did all lifesaving badges and the snorkel diving badge. Now I am giving courses and attending advanced courses and seminars. Currently I am working on the Lehrschein.


From 2010 on, I spend about five weekends a year with lifeguarding. In 2011 I was in Borkum for one week and took part in ZWRD-K. I completed my Fachausbildung Wasserrettungsdienst in mid 2012 and in September 2012 I passed the coxswain examination.


Back in 2010 I started to teach lifeguarding and normally I have one course per season. In addition to that I hold our yearly first-aid course which is associated with the examinations for lifesaving badges and mandatory for our active lifeguards. This is the complete (and growing) list:

  • Season 2013/14: Trainer for Seepferdchen.
  • March 2013: First-Aid course for our active lifeguards.
  • Season 2012/13: Trainer for Seepferdchen.
  • May 2012: First-Aid course for lifesaving badges.
  • March 2012: First-Aid course for our active lifeguards.
  • Season 2011/12: Trainer for DJSA Gold; Assistant for Schnorcheltauchabzeichen.
  • April 2011: First-Aid course debut.
  • Season 2010/11: Assistant for DJSA Gold.
