Hi! I'm Tobias. Welcome on fooo.ooo

Oct 18, 2018

Since you are reading this right now, this means you have found your way onto my website. Awesome! In this post I will cover the fundamental idea for this website, as well as what to expect from me in the future. Additionally, I will give you a short overview of who I am and what I do, so you know who you are dealing with.

About me

Portrait of me

My Name is Tobias Würth, but I am fine with you calling me Toby if you wish to do so. I was born in Switzerland and have been living here ever since.

I have a passion for music, mainly Hip-Hop & Rap, but I also listen to Deephouse, Reggae and anything else with a certain vibe to it. I love to spend time with my friends and family. Connecting with nature helps me balance with my everyday job at the desk, regardless of it being hiking in autumn, skiing in winter or just spending some time at a local lake during a hot summer.

As of writing this article I have been programming software for around 10 years now. What once started as a hobby has since grown into my love, passion and mean to earn a living. I posses a Federal Diploma of Vocational Education and Training (VET) for software engineering issued by the Swiss government, which basically means I am a trained professional. I also participated in several national wide software engineering competitions. The ones most notably being the ICT-/Swiss Skills and the AppQuest by the HSR University of Applied Sciences. I ended up becoming two time regional ICT-Skills champion of Zürich in 2016 and 2017, national champion in the Swiss Skills 2017 in the trait of business application development and my team also managed to secure itself the first place in the AppQuest 2015.

About Fooo.ooo

Fooo.ooo has started as a website just for myself and the people who wanted to connect with me. The concept has since shifted towards being a more general hub of information. I do not want to limit myself regarding the topics I may or may not cover in the future, but possible topics could be

  • Programming with a focus on …
    • Tutorials & guides
    • Design patterns & clean code
    • Advanced practices
  • News & updates in the realm of …
    • Security & software
    • Hardware & gadgets
    • Events & upcoming technologies

There is already a lot of great content out there, but it can be overwhelming especially if you are not from within the scene. My goal is to make the information accessible and understandable for many different targets, be it someone who has been in the industry for years or someone who is just trying to get a hold of things. Some posts may be very advanced and in-depth while others might only scratch the surface. If you want to stay up to date or educate yourself, fooo.ooo is the place to look for first - at least that is the idea. I am in a position where I can give you insights of the industry and my personal point of view on many different topics which hopefully help you find the information you are looking for.
