Manuel Lorenz - Professional Business Analyst and Instructor

The rapid development of technology and business requirements forces everyone to constantly adapt and to continue learning. Being an early adopter of new and quickly evolving tools, he always enjoyed both learning these tools and passing on his knowledge to his colleagues and fellow students. Since working as a business analyst implies a high affinity to programming, He also enjoy's working as a web developer. It's that combination of self-taught knowledge and its application in a highly competitive consulting environment for various clients which gave him the ability to evaluate solutions from an industry perspective as well as from a learner's perspective. The latter also allows him to identify the pain points students might hit when learning these tools. Since he always found it hard to find high quality, understandable and comprehensive learning materials, he decided to create such materials on his own. Together with Maximilian Schwarzmüller he founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience on web development and data science to more than 300,000 students.

Maximilian Schwarzmüller

Maximilian Schwarzmüller - Professional Web Developer and Instructor Since the age of 13, Maximilian Schwarzmüller has never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. In the early days, he started creating websites for friends and for fun. This passion has remained and shaped his decision to work as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun he has in this job is immense and really keeps that passion alive. Although he started web development on the back end (PHP with Laravel and NodeJS), he has increasingly become a front-end developer using modern frameworks such as React, Angular, or VueJS 2 in a lot of projects. He loves both worlds nowadays! As a self-taught developer, he had broadened his horizon by studying Business Administration, resulting in a Master's degree. This enabled him to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. Whilst learning and developing his skills, he realized that he enjoyed development more than these fields. As a self-taught professional, Max is familiar with the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable him to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. His track record is the best proof of that. Whether working as a development instructor or teaching Business Administration, he always receives great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new and better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects, or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of his content.
