Finally – I have time to blog again ;)

April 4th, 2013

Howdy folks!

It’s been quite some time (1.5 years) since my last blogpost. A lot of things happened and I am currently involved into several private fun projects. So it’s time for me to start blogging again – yeah!

The following content of this post is a teaser for upcoming projects and a short summary of interesting tech things & other stuff in the last 1.5 years ūüėČ

NTB Buchs – Graduation 2012

Finally¬†we had our 1 week party at the NTB campus in Buchs with camping, barbecue, pool and drinks…

Here are some impressions summarized in a Youtube video (sorry, only on Mac/PC Рno mobile):

Bachelor of Science FHO in Systems Engineering with specialisation in Electronics and Control Engineering

My performance during my studies was quite good and so I received some prices that I invested in my USA trip in the following month. A big thank you to all my colleagues at the NTB for their support and their great friendship. It was a pleasure to share four years together.

Beside working I finished my bachelors degree in electronics and controller design.
My official title is now BSc FHO (Fachhochschule Ostschweiz) – but I will not use it in daily business.

USA Roadtrip

After this stressful time I took a month off with my girlfriend and we traveled along the westcoast of the USA. We visited a lot of National Parks, San Francisco, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Phoenix, Palm Springs, San Diego, LA and finally the last week in Miami. For a guy from Europe / Austria this was a very impressive and cool time. Cruising¬†down the roads and listening to country music… mhm… I want back ūüėČ
California and Las Vegas were the absolute highlights on our tour.

The following pictures show things that I am currently working on and I am planning to explain here in detail.

Ok that’s so far.

Beside that projects we are currently planning our house that we will build in the next 1 to 2 years. – More to come…
