Robert was born in Vienna in 1986 (Austria). Since he learned in school that anyone owning a computer has the means to write programs for it, he bought a 1200 pages book on C++ and was into programming. Since then he is a self taught passionate programmer, both as a hobby and professionally. Later he also learned Java, Python, Lua, Assembler and D. D was the first language that finally let him leave his mother tongue (C++) behind a bit until he finally learned Haskell and was sold on statically typed functional programming and Haskell in particular, embracing laziness. He had courses about Haskell at the Vienna University of Technology and worked through a bunch of books.
In 2014, he became a father of twins, which resulted in him writing a baby monitor in Haskell. Then he got invited to an “open-source innovation camp”, by Netidee.
