I am Michael, a new mapper from Karlsruhe (Germany). I had already done small fixes to OSM in the past, but I am only really actively since 2015, when I got a Garmin Dakota GPS device. I am a physics student and I know some programming, so that might also be a potential way of contributing in the future. The sport I love is Judo, but I also like cycling, which helps with openstreetmap. Also, recently I have started geohashing. It is fun and can be combined with mapping activities. I would like to meet other nearby mappers, but I haven't yet had time to go to one of the monthly meetups.
