Johannes Filter

Hi, Iā€™m Johannes Filter! šŸ™‹šŸ»ā€ā™‚ļø

I use technology as a tool for social progress.

I study computer science at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany and my work is focused on Civic Tech, Human-Computer Interaction and Machine Learning.

I am an activist for more transparency in the public sector. Together with FragDenStaat, I fight for Freedom of Information and I frequently participate in events and projects of the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany such as Code for Germany.

I live and breathe the Word Wide Web and I am comfortable in using various kind of Web technologies. Because I still believe in the liberating effect of open source software, I regularily contribute to it on Github.
