Interview with Maximilian Schwarzmüller

Today we have the pleasure to publish the second video from our series of interviews of people we consider to be modern day heroes: OpenSource developers.

Sponsored by letsboot.com

Maximilian Schwarzmüller started to code at the age of 13, and he has never stopped since then. He began web development on the backend (PHP with Laravel, NodeJS) and now, he does more and more frontend development using modern frameworks like Angular or VueJS 2 in various projects.

You can follow his courses on Udemy and watch his video on his Youtube channel Academind.

Here are the questions we asked:

  • Cats or Dogs?
  • If you could travel back in time to stop or remove one software project, which would it be?
  • What made you start coding at 13?
  • Yarn or npmAt which age should kids learn to code?
  • You are self-taught in programming, what do you think of CS degrees these days?

  • React or Angular or Vue.jsDo your parents/relatives understand what you do?
  • Is there something you wouldn’t make OpenSource / Open Technology?
  • WebStorm, VSCode or Sublime or AtomWould you want to start a coding bootcamp on the back of your Udemy success?
