Welcome to Rudi-Horn.de!

Hello and welcome to my personal home page. My name is Rudi Horn and I am currently enrolled at the University of Duisburg-Essen studying for a degree in Computer Engineering.

From an early age I was fascinated by the possibilities of technology and in particular that of computers. I enjoy figuring out the problem of how computers work and function, all the way from basic transistors through microcontrollers, operating systems and higher level networking.

Over the years I have done a lot of programming especially in C# and C(++) as well as some microcontroller programming mainly using Microchip's PIC line and with it small amounts of electronics.

I am part of the committee of the newly founded university hackerspace void and am trying to promote electronics and programming. I have also been elected to the chairman of the Fachschaftsrat (student body council) of ISE (International Studies in Engineering). I currently work part-time at the Fraunhofer inHaus Zentrum where I have been working on projects involving microcontrollers and also hold a part-time post as the IT consultant for the AStA (Allgemeiner Studierendenausschuss = students' union executive comittee).
