Doing things. Differently.
Stuff I do
Gasket, my current startup. It'll do no less than revolutionizing the way people work with spreadsheets.
Founder of Prokapi, where we do consulting and development focussed on modern web development and mobile applications. Mind you, its homepage is quite outdated (the perks of too much work!)
I'm mentoring some people on their journey to
becoming good programmers. I answer their questions regarding C, Python and Django,
and pester them with feedback and programming tasks.
I run the SaaS app BunkerApp, a full-blown toolbox for freelancers offering everyting they need for their daily workflow.
Co-founder of naggelMobile (now dismantled), developer of mobile apps for Palm/HP webOS. Our apps won
several awards (and they would've been featured in TV spots if HP hadn't discontinueed webOS!)
Stuff I know
I'm a true full-stack web developer, understanding modern webdev
from all the high level stuff down to the actual electrons travelling through the computer's circuits.
Though webdev is my bread and butter work, I also enjoy going down the stack
and getting my hands dirty with mobile development using C and OpenGL.
I also enjoyed some formal education and recevied a Diploma in Electrical Engineering
from renowed RWTH Aachen University.
For my diploma thesis, aptly named Architecture Exploration of Compressed Sensing for LTE Channel Estimation, I designed an ASIC processor with its
own instruction set and architecture, then optimized several algorithms for it and implemented
them in an assembler language specifically developed for this processor architecture.
- There's also my horribly outdated CV.
Stuff I like
- Hiking, Biking, and Skike'ing with Steffi in Canada.
- Franz Kafka, e.g. his masterpiece Das Schloß (The Castle).
I coordinated the German translation team from 2004 to 2014, did bug triaging, and ran booths and spoke at several events.
- Bitcoin, though I regret deleting my wallet.dat back in 2010
- I ♥ Free Software, so kudos to FSF, GNU, Mozilla and all you other awesome folks!
