Hello, my name is Robin Vanluchene. I was born on 2 March 1998 and I am studying applied computer science at Hogent. My hometown is Pittem, a village in West Flanders. During the week I am staying in a room at the student house Astrum. I have always been fascinated by computers and technology: understanding how some particular software works or discovering where a bug comes from, that are things that I find interesting. I see myself as a stable person. I am always aiming for a good result by working hard and accurately. I am also a real team player. I like working together with other people in a group in which everyone has his own role. But of course I am always prepared to offer my help to the rest of my team, when they have a problem.
When I was 18, I graduated at the high school Eureka in Torhout where I was following the education mathematics/science.
At the proclamation I was really proud of myself when I received a special award for computer science.
After high school I went to the university of Ghent to follow the education computer science. I learned a lot there, but the education was too theoretical and perhaps also a little bit to difficult for me. But don’t misunderstand me, this was certainly not a lost year. Now I am sure that computer science will always be my true passion.
At the moment I am studying my first year in the professional bachelor program of applied computer science at Hogent.
I usually spend my spare time on gaming. I am sure that gaming has laid the foundation for my passion for computer science. While most gamers play a game because it is popular or because it has great graphics or because it is an easy game, I play games with interesting mechanics, games which expect of you to really understand the working of the game so that you can achieve the best possible result. I also love studying every detail of every game, I really want to know how everything works. Other people may think that something is just a detail, for me it is something great.
I also have a youtube channel which is based on my favourite video game Team Fortress 2. I mainly make
videos to help people to better understand the game. I give them certain clues and learn them certain
technics so that they can perform in a better way. I am always prepared to help people and to coach
them in their games. Youtube seemed to me an easy way to help as many people as possible.
