For me, programming languages are a specific sort of syntax, the fact that I know a few already, means that I’m not frightened of picking up another one and learning it from scratch, …in fact, I welcome this type of environment
I like it when people like to share their experiences and when they’re open to hearing about experiences from other people.

In my spare time, I’m the owner and organizer of the Swiss Trading & Investing Meetup. At the time of writing, the Meetup group has 769 member and the related Telegram group has 216 members. We mainly discuss trading and investing strategies over a drink once every 2 weeks in Zürich. Approximately 4 times per year, we have more formal presentation events in Swissquote’s Lounge on Löwenstrasse.
Additionally, my interests of finance and technology are a natural fit for Bitcoin. I’ve been attending bitcoin conferences since 2017 and I’m fascinated by the technology and economics of the system. It will be really interesting to see where bitcoin will be in 2030 as it develops as a value transfer protocol for bitcoin and other assets.
At home I spend a lot of time learning and experimenting with the 2 topics above.
In Switzerland I live with my life parner and our dogs in the middle of the city where I can be exposed to social activity in bars and restaurants. 🙂
