About Me

My name is Philip Trettner and I’m co-founder of Shaped Code where I’m available as freelancer and contractor.

Recently, I finished my time as a PhD student in computer graphics at the Visual Computing Institute of the RWTH Aachen University, Germany.

This is my personal blog where I write about programming, C++, computer science, optimization, technology, and more. I’m mainly interested in:

  • Computer Graphics
  • C++ and OpenGL
  • Optimization and Efficiency
  • Game Development
  • Library Development and API Design
  • Programming Language Design
  • Procedural Generation
  • Geometry Processing

I hope to one day write about the programming language I’m designing.

It seems nowadays necessary to point out that all expressed opinions are my own.
