about me

I am Samir Benzammour, a computer science student from Germany, nice to meet you!

I graduated from high school in 2017 and am currently enrolled at university, so currently most of my time is occupied with courses. I’m sure some of you will feel my pain with this, however, in my opinion it’s quite worth it due to the fact that I’m learning a lot through all of this. I’m trying to spend most of my free time programming, reading and going to the gym - I also enjoy the occasional movie.

About the programming part, I’m not really specialized in one area/language, so I mostly create whatever I want - or whatever I need. Those are mostly little scripts that help me automate my workflow, or a few bigger projects that test my abilities to plan and execute projects with a little bit more thought behind them. I recently also got into CTFs, as I always had a keen interest in IT-security and cryptography. I am currently still a novice in this area but am looking forward to building my skillset over time.

Regarding the books, I managed to relit the love for books I had as a kid. I mostly enjoy reading non-fiction (psychology, socialeconomics, selfimprovement, …) but also a bunch of fictional stuff to relax at night. If you’re interested in what I’m reading (or planning to read), you can find me on GoodReads.
