My name is Wolfgang Thaller. I live in Graz, Austria (that's in Europe - no kangaroos here). I am 21 years old (born in 1981), and writing computer programs has been my hobby for more than half of my life.
I released my first shareware program, DeadEnd, in December of 1993. Check out the other sections of this web site for the current versions of my programs.
I have represented Austria at the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) four times (1996 - 1999), winning two silver and two gold medals.
Most of my programs are written in C++. I like it because it is a language that allows me to write all kinds
of programs, without restricting my programming style too much - it allows everything from the lowest level of
abstraction up to pretty high levels of abstraction.
3D computer graphics has always fascinated me. I used to write small programs (all unfinished and forgotten) using Apple's QuickDraw 3D, and now I'm using OpenGL. I also enjoy using the freeware raytracer POV-Ray to create virtual worlds all of my own - maybe I'll publish some of them here once.
