Hi, I'm Anton Lydike, a Berlin based hobby full stack dev. I am currently 18 years old and graduating from a medical informatics highschool.

What I do

I love creating things to solve problems, to make people happy, or just because I had that one (seemingly) great idea. Check out a list of things I created in my portfolio.

What I am interested in

Internet security and encryption

I am thinking about secure services and am constantly trying to create some myslef - and then try to break them. I haven't released anything bigger than a simple package yet, because I don't trust my own crypto unless someone much more experienced than me takes a very close look.

Full Stack Development

I love doing web-related stuff. I set up my own RaspberryPi server to host some projects, created a plethora of more or less useful projects ranging from short-time-low-effort to why-does-this-take-so-long and spent countless hours on reddit reading blogposts on why X is better than Y.

Neural networks

I bet you too have some thing you find super interesting and super awesome, something that you just can't get out of your mind. For me, it's neural networks. I wanted to get into this subject for quite a bit now but couldn't due to time restrictions - this will hopefully change when I graduate from highschool.

My skills

HTML

I am very experienced with the basic and advanced features of HTML. I have grasped the concepts of the DOM and shaodow-DOM. I often use the Pug (a.k.a. Jade) precompiler.

CSS

I have some experiences in creating my own css designs but prefer frameworks as they brings consistency to the product and streamline development. I use the LESS precompiler.

JavaScript

I am quite experienced in JavaScript as I believe it to be one of the most important languages in web development going forwards. I worked with a few of popular frameworks and am sure that I will be able to pick up new ones if it is necessary.

Meteor

Meteor is such a cool framework for web applications. That said I sadly am not as experienced as I would like to be, although I am constantly improving as I build projects with Meteor.

MongoDB

MongoDB is a NoSQL database natively included in Meteor. As I learned Meteor, I quickly fell in love with it as it's such a simple and easy to use database.

PHP

Even though I am not a huge fan of PHP, I still use it for all my projects that are unable to use Meteor. I am quite experienced in using it, but never did it object orientated. I built my own framework to make data access with JavaScript easier.

(My)SQL

As learning MySQL is part of my schools programme, I got quite in depth with it. It is my prefered database to use in conjunction with PHP.

Java(FX)

JavaFX is also part of my schools programme and after spending some time with it I came to the conclusion, that it's Java trying to be JavaScript with XML instead of HTML and a weird type of css. I don't quite like it but understand that it might be useful in some cases.

Git(Hub)

I use GitHub for a lot of my bigger projects. For some more sensitive projects I like the free private repositories from GitLab more as I don't want to spend money on GitHub (yet).

Linux

I switched to Linux a couple of years ago and learned a couple of things since then. I did some bash programming and learned a few administrative things while setting up my RaspberryPi. I wouldn't call myself Linux savvy by any stretch of the imagination.

Portfolio

I developed a wide variety of things in the last couple of years. Here is a collection of projects that I found particularly interesting or worth mentioning.

mariakob.de

Mariakob is the website of my brother and his girlfriend who are painting together. The center of it is the big slider which displays their images in all their beauty.

PaisleyOfficial.com

PAISLEYs music is raw and genuine indie rock with a strong British influence, due to Liam's English heritage and their shared taste in music. They capture their favourite sounds from the past decades and give them a new shape. Catchy vocals accompanied by 70s style guitar riffs and an energetic rhythm section.

ErikKoszuta.de

Erik Koszuta is a german host, author and politician. As this website is also used as a blog for him, I created a custom Wordpress theme.

JafaFX - file 2 chart

This is one of my favorite little JavaFX projects. I used a framework in JavaFX which I had created earlier for a more complex project. I implemented a drag'n'drop file import first, which read the data from the file into an easily usable data structure. I then built another view which would use that data structure and draw it as a graph. What I love so much about this is, that I could easily expand the functionality because I have such a clear structure.

GitHub

enary.js

enary.js is a frontend framework I created as I wanted something similar to Meteor, compatible with an Apache webserver (running PHP and a MySQL database). It isn't finished yet and I am not sure if it will ever finish. I do not recommend using it for your project as there are so many better choices out there.

Others

I did a lot more smaller things. You can see them on my CodePen.io profile. Here is a small collection of my most noteworthy pens:
