Welcome, I am Florian, and this is my personal website and developer blog, where I write about my free-time software projects. Sharing my experience with others allows me to get a deeper understanding of these topics. It also helps me to improve my writing skills, and get in touch with other people who have the same interests. So I always welcome feedback, questions, or other comments which you can leave at the end of each post. You can also directly send me an e-mail.
What I Do
In 2021, after years of studying and working as researchers, two of my colleagues and I decided to do a complete turnaround and build our own business. So we founded our startup Sylagon, and made it our mission to improve the web by providing a service that automates the process of creating interactive and data-driven web visualizations. We believe that there should also be a way for people without a technical background to benefit from simple, interactive and meaningful data visualizations. In a first step, we were accepted into the pre-scale-up program of the incubator Tech2B.
Before, I was studying for a PhD in computer science, and I worked at the Institute for System Software in coorperation with Oracle Labs. My research focused on partial evaluation, automatic compiler generation and the Futamura projections in GraalVM and the Graal compiler.
