My name is Baptiste Wicht and I'm now 28 years old. I’m currently a Ph.D student in Computer Science at the University of applied sciences in Fribourg. I've been programming in Java for years and I'm now working especially with C++.

I’ve been active in, a french computer science community, for more than three years. At first, I went there to ask for help about my programming problems and almost always found solutions. Then, Java responsible asked me to moderate the Java forums. After that, I started to write Java tutorials. I started with a tutorial explaining the creation of GUI with Swing. Then, I continued with an article about a simple Java update system and later wrote a lot of other articles in several categories. And after that, I was one of the two Java Community Leaders on Now, I have left these responsibilities to write this blog.

In 2011, I started C++ for my Bachelor project and since this time wrote several projects in C++ and did my best to improve my skills with this language and its libraries.

It hasn't been very long since I started writing articles and tutorials in English, but I do my best to have a good writing level. If you find errors, don’t hesitate to contact me.

A (short) list of my publication is available on the Publications page.
