I studied Science in Education focusing in new technologies and ICT in the field of education. I hold an MSc degree in Science in Education from the Department of Primary Education at University of Ioannina. My master thesis was about developing a game about physics in Unity 3D game engine. My BSc thesis was about developing a platform to support the internships of students of Primary Education Department.
I have been working as a programmer since 2012 (TheDevelopers.gr) developing awesome websites, applications and games and as a system administrator since 2014 managing 2 servers that run centos for 103 clients.
