Dieter was born in 1966 and raised in Munich, Germany. Making first contact with computers and programming in 1981 set the course for a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from the Technical University in Munich in 1991. Since 2007 Dieter is a frequent Metaverse traveller, evaluating its usability for education, collaboration and entertainment. To provide a safe, simple and reliable entry-level access to the Metaverse, he started to create his own web-based virtual world platform from scratch ( https://metaverse.community ) to be accessed from the browser without any registration, installation or plug-ins. New features are added constantly to increase the benefits for the users.
To be able to offer a virtual world platform for educational, collaboration and entertainment uses, the METAVERSE SCHOOL GmbH ( https://metaverse.school ) was founded in 2017.
