My name is Benjamin Rotendahl, I love programming, teaching and building silly things. I live in Copenhagen where I study computer science at DIKU. I spend some of my free time time being a part of Coding Pirates where I teach kids to code.
I’ve studied part time for a large part of my time at university, this has allowed me to try different development jobs, teaching gigs and side projects.
