A Web and App Developer from Luxembourg.
Hi! I am Benoît Frisch, a Web and App Developer from Luxembourg.
I started working with computers (maintenance of Mac OS computers and setup of Mac OS Server with mobile accounts) at the age of 11. I started learning basic HTML at the age of 12 and I was able to start first trials of iOS App development at the age of 13 because I wanted to have a faster way to look-up Latin Vocabulary.
Although the first iOS App (Latin Voc) development wasn’t really successful at the beginning, I was able to publish a first App Ecole Mersch at the age of 15 after reading many books and following tutorials on the web. I developed this app at the same time as the LCD-App.
This first progress pushed me forward in the app development and I was finally able to publish the Latin Voc App at the end of the year 2012.
By the years passing I was able to make much more progress in app development and I have currently 14 apps available on the App Store and 9 apps available on Google Play. (Check out the portfolio to see them all)
After having learned a solid base in Android and iOS App Development (written in Java and Objective-C) I started learning PHP to create more complex websites than I was able to build only by using drag and drop in WordPress or core HTML/CSS.
I was able to develop some projects like Concertations or Bichelchen.lu which helped me to advance in my progress. In fact I can say that all programming and development knowledge I acquired until that moment was obtained by learning by doing in auto didacticism. A more detailed list of websites can be found in my portfolio.
I started the creation of a PHP based system allowing students calculating their average marks because I saw that many of my colleagues in school weren’t able to calculate their average mark. I published this system under the name Calcave available on the App Store and it has already been used by around 4 000 students to calculate around 100 000 marks.
At the age of 18 years I founded premiere.lu a platform displaying old exams and corrections in a very organised and simple way. This is available as a website and an iOS App (Android App is still in development due to a shortage of time). This platform has got around 1 milion screen views until the time of writing.
Currently I am studying Computer science at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and I started publishing some work on Github. When I have free time I’m currently developing new features and maintaining the premiere.lu website and setting up treizieme.lu (same system as premiere.lu but adapted for secondaire technique).
I founded a non profit organisation Schoulsport.lu A.s.b.l. (President) to make available in a non profit way the sports system built for LCD Sport. Only hosting and setup fees are being billed by the organisation, my time is not remunerated.
You can also check out an article appeared in the Luxemburger Wort 15.09.2016 about me.
I am currently able to design and develop iOS and Android Apps written in Java, Objective-C or Swift and to create Websites or backends using WordPress, the Symfony framework or plain PHP. I can also handle all HTML, CSS or JS work. I can edit and create any graphics where a professional and longterm experience is needed (Logo design, Flyer, Poster Layout). I can also offer project management advice or Mac OS computer/server maintenance support.
If you have any questions or projects please contact me. Please take note that I haven’t much time at the moment because I’m studying which allows me to strengthen my competences in Computer Science and push them to a higher level.
