My name is Benjamin Layer. I love words, sentences, books. In short: I love language. I consume it whenever I can and I decided to make the usage of language my profession. Not anymore in an academic way, but as a writer, author and copy editor.

The human capability to speak is one of the most fascinating things on earth. The anatomic, cognitive and neural factors that are involved are so complicated and intrigue, it is no exaggeration to say: It is the most complicated system, humans developed.

Programming was one of my passions since I was twelve and had access to a computer. I started with BASIC and made my way over Pascal and Java untill I finally kind of stuck with Python. While I learned basic PHP and HTML soon enough, it took me some time to make the step towards WebProgramming. But finally I worked myself into it and after several projects I'm now proficient with HTML, CSS, PHP, Wordpress and have skills in JavaScript, Ruby and Gimp-Design.
