My name is Christopher Sax, I’m 26 years old and I live in Austria. I am currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Vienna. Before that, I tried out studying Software Engineering but figured that the courses weren’t what I was looking for, so I moved to Munich for 6 months for an internship at a software company to gain more insight. Later, I decided to study my second interest psychology in Vienna.
What I Do
Today, I am involved in web development as well as in psychology. It’s a weird mix, I know, but those two can be combined. In research designs, a lot of things have to be coded to be assessed correctly, such as eye tracking experiments. In those cases, I’m already equipped with the necessary skills to code the experiment.
In the psychology domain, I am involved in research about social psychology and especially consumer behaviour by being a research assistant at the University of Vienna. Research I’m involved with generally includes marketing, branding or some kind of eye tracking.
In the web development domain, I specialize in PHP and frameworks associated with it. Of course, all the “general” frameworks like JQuery and Bootstrap CSS as well as standard plugins are also used in my project. My latest project is lagorial.com, a product &services search engine enabling people to search for a product or service that can be bought nearby. Businesses can save their products or services online and users can search through the offers of many businesses nearby. This fosters small businesses by giving them an easy way to “go online” while not having to open a web shop or operate an own website.
Why I Do It
Because I love it.
