About

My name is Felix. I have a master’s degree in Business Administration and I am currently doing a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at the University of Leipzig. On the side, I work as a project manager and can help you, to make your ideas a reality.

Since I am a big Apple fan, I am currently learning Swift, Apples programming language for macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS, to build awesome apps.

Public commitments are the most motivating. At the moment I am chasing the following goals. If you would like to help me reach them, check in on me and poke me about them:

Collection

Below you find a collection of tips and tricks about things I have learned and found in the past. Since I am living in Germany, some of the tips may not be useful for everyone. In order of coolness.

Uberspace

is a hosting provider. They offer a shared hosting experience that is a little bit more limited than a root server. However, their support is amazing and it’s a super good place to host for tinkerers and small projects. Highly recommended. Check out my Tutorials or the Uberlab for U7 for things you can do on your Uberspace!

Things I am using on Uberspace:

Tecspace

is a hosting provider and domain registrar. I buy and manage my domains through their service. It is extremely cheap, costing only 2,50 EUR per year, if you have 10 or more domains. I love their admin interface. It is simple, behaves like a website should behave (no JavaScript shenanigans) and is very powerful.

Pinboard

is a bookmarking service. It’s minimalistic, easy to use and offers an archiving service so you will never lose these good articles on the internet again. My public account: u:felixfoertsch.

Affinity

produces Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. They are competitors to the popular Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. These two programs are exceptional. You can do basically everything you can do with their Adobe counterparts, but they only cost 55 EUR each. No subscriptions, no recurring fees. The interface is polished and if you are an Adobe user you will be right at home. Quit Adobe today. Don’t let them milk you.

Quotes

Like everyone else, I stumbled upon quotes from famous persons, that stuck with me. Here are a few of them:
