Last summer I got asked to do a photoshoot together with a friend of mine and her horse. As it was my first shoot of this kind they are not perfect but I learned a lot from it and I'm looking forward to the next shooting :-)

In Austria each boy has to do either a military service or a civil service after finishing school. I went for the civil service as a paramedic at the Red Cross Austria. It have been 9 amazing months. I learnt alot about the human body, psychology and our society in general. But as you might guess, after those 9 months you are really ready for a holiday. So that's what we did.

Two years after I first went to Apples WWDC it was time to pack my stuff together once again. I decided that as I got two weeks off from my civil service I wanted to spend as much of it in beautiful California. So that's what I did.

So I recently graduated from my school, "HLW für Kommunikations- und Mediendesign", which roughly translates to highschool with focus on communication and media design. Part of that process were the A levels or high school diploma ("Matura"), which I finished last week. Now I'm oficially no longer a student. Weird feeling after atending school for 13 years.
Anyway, students have to write some form of thesis for the A levels. My topic was RSA, especially the maths behind it. As it's written in german, it's not too interesting for everyone, however I thought it might interest some on what I had to work on the last year. This is the written part of the thesis, and this pdf contains the slides (I had to present a random excerpt of the whole presentation). Both files were created in LaTeX, which was its own challenge ;-)

2013 has already become one of those years I will never forget again. Partly because I achieved what was very long a dream of mine: Make a trip to San Francisco, attend the WWDC and also visit the "mothership", the Apple headquarter in Cupertino.
I'm very glad that I had the chance to do all this, and I also want to thank everyone who helped to make this possible.
