My same is Simon Dreher and at the moment I'm a student at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. I am studying Computer Science and currently am trying to survive the 11th semester.

Many of my interests are related to computers: programming, computer aided drawing and experimenting with my little servers. Some of my programming related projects can be seen on the projects page.

For the university we also have to do some extracurricular stuff, so recently I visited a drawing course and am planning to continue practicing it. Hopefully I can soon show something here on the blog.

Besides of this I enjoy reading very much, but lately I unfortunately lack the time for it. Mainly because I have to learn a lot and additionally I have to work a bit to earn money. For this I am working for a local fruit and vegetable seller in my hometown Calw.
