Hi, my name is Maxim Maeder, a young programming enthusiast looking to have fun coding and teaching you some things about programming.
Don’t forget to follow my Social Media Channels listed in the Footer. I’m most active on Github and Instagram.
My Programming Journey
How I started
I started to program in the last year of Highschool (Volksschule here in Switzerland) with webtigerjython, a web-based Python interpreter to teach children programming with a simplified version of the turtle library.
I had a lot of fun learning all the concepts and even made a game with this simple Interface. Later, I also learned Pygame and made some games with it.
Later, I got several Books by Al Sweigart and Eric Mathes, like “Automate the Boring Stuff With Python” and “Python Crash Course”.
My First Real Website
So I made my first larger and Public Website in October 2021. Quuli.ch is a German quiz website where my friends and I added questions. Despite not knowing the best practices, I had much fun working on this project.
Learning, Learning, Learning …
For the next year, I just learned about Concepts and Functionalities. In January 2022, I started writing articles for two Publications about Python. I even earned a little money here which made me very Proud. In the Summer of 2022, I started my blog, documenting my Projects and hoping to teach you something.
Writing articles is rather hard, but I’m having a lot of fun, and I hope I can teach you something new!
Then in February of 2023, I made my own WordPress Plugin to manage my articles hosted on Github as Markdown. I also created a fully custom classic theme for my Blog.
