This website is my personal "corner" of the internet, where I host some of the things I've done—mainly PHP scripts, alongside some language-related lists and projects, as well as the occasional picture.
You can contact me through the contact form; I'm always happy to receive mail.
I live in Switzerland and have a Bachelor's degree in Software Systems from the University of Zürich. Since 2015, I've been working as a software engineer and still enjoy programming in my free time—nowadays mostly in Java. My GitHub username is ljacqu.
I speak German, French and English natively. Languages interest me a lot: I've been learning Dutch off and on for a handful of years and did a year of Russian at university. A rather uncommon interest I have is knowing how languages are written and how they sound, and being able to identify them.
While I'm not much of a gamer, I played through quite a few games, including Tomb Raider III, Mirror's Edge, TrackMania and Minecraft. In particular, I ran a small 11-slot Minecraft server from 2011 to 2012, which turned out to be a very fun and educational experience.
Music is something I enjoy a lot. I like bands such as Grimes, Tegan & Sara, The Drums, Youth Code, and Bring Me The Horizon, to name a few. I played the piano for 5 years but was never particularly good or passionate about it.
From 2007 through 2013, I was part of the support team for CuteNews (a content management system in PHP) and also maintained my own fork, UTF-8 CuteNews, which fixed security holes, ensured compatibility with newer browsers and offered more internationalization features (such as UTF-8 support and translatable fields). Official development of CuteNews has since been continued and my fork is therefore no longer maintained.
