Hello! My name is Lukas Erlacher. I am a hacker (thus the glider in the logo) from Germany.

I just got done with chapter two of my formal education in Computer Science at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich (TU München) where I finished my Master’s degree in April 2015. Now I am working as a systems engineer for the IT department’s IT department.

I have fifteen years of experience trying to make computers do what I want them to do. I’ve worked as a HTML/PHP/MYSQL/JOOMLA web dev, administered small and medium networks and computing infrastructure, written desktop apps, developed highly-parallel optimization clusters before GPGPU was really a thing (I already had HLSL, so it was bearable), developed the control system and electronics for a battery-electric prototype car, and spent eight years at Technische Universität München.

I have a strong background in networking and embedded development. I prefer backend work to frontend and establishing correctness by proof to approximating correctness by testing. I am proficient in C, Python, and C#. I’m also capable of using Java, Lua, and PHP and hacking something up in JS if needed.

As you might be able to deduce from the site design (only slightly adapted from the hakyll default site), I’m not a web designer. I’m the kind of person who uses the “Windows Classic” desktop theme and prefers the console to GUI applications.
