My name is Stefan Mandel (Mandel is the german word for almond, which is amygdalum in latin) and I live in the city of Karlsruhe in Germany. I have a Diploma in Computer Science, being interested in manifold aspects of this subject.

As software craftsman I am interested especially in methods and tools to optimize the software process.

As computer scientist with strong theoretical background I often read about subjects of language theory, string search, pattern matching and artificial intelligence.

As software developer I try out popular frameworks for Java and of late for Javascript.

I am also interested in subjects apart from computer science such as chemistry, biology (molecular genetics), history or portfolio theory.
