Florian is from Hamm, Germany, a town located in the Ruhr region by Dortmund and Koln. He enjoyed his childhood dedicated to soccer until he got injured. His mother worked for a courthouse and his father is a P.E. teacher. At first glance, nothing destined Florian to turn to computer science. However, he has always loved puzzles, logic games, and science subjects. Florian also fell in love with chess in Middle school. Although he enjoyed Math and Physics, he considered these subjects to be a bit “dry.” Therefore, when his high school gave him the opportunity to take a computer science class, he jumped on it!
