    Academind GmbH

    Bundling the courses and the knowledge of successful instructors, Academind strives to deliver high-quality online education. The platform covers topics such as web development, data analysis, and more in a fun and engaging way.

    Maximilian Schwarzmüller

    Since the age of 13, he has never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. In his early days, he started creating websites simply for fun. This passion has remained and shaped his decision to work as a freelance web developer and consultant. Although he started web development on the backend (PHP with Laravel and NodeJS), he has progressed to becoming a front-end developer using modern frameworks such as React, Angular, and VueJS 2 in many projects.

    The most rewarding experience for him is to see how people find new and better jobs, build exciting web applications, acquire amazing projects, or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of his content.

  • Manuel Lorenz

    Manuel is a professional business analyst and instructor. 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 for programming, he also enjoys 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 that gives 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. As 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.
