Axel Dürkop successfully completed his studies in philosophy and German language and literature in Hamburg. Meanwhile and afterwards he worked for ten years as a director, musician and actor at German city and state theatres, also with children and young people.
Since his youth he has cultivated a passion for programming languages, software and computers because, like the stage, they have the potential to change the world.
For more than ten years Axel Dürkop has taught computer science from a technical and philosophical perspective. He is a passionate autodidact and lifelong learner. In his current position as a research assistant at Hamburg University of Technology, his focus is on researching and shaping openness in research, teaching and society. In this field he’s also currently working on his PhD thesis.
This blog is my place. Here I write about things that interest and move me, that I try out and want to share with others. The articles are partly in English, partly in German, which I decide according to which readers I reach best and how. The views expressed here are my own private ones, and are based in part on my teaching and research activities, but do not reflect the views of my employer.
This blog runs with Hugo, which doesn’t have a comment system. I don’t want to include Disqus because I find a service that only collects opinions problematic. Instead, I use Isso (I’ll scream otherwise!).
