On this page, you can CV find my in an informal version. A formal CV is available on a short term notice both in English and German language.
Current state: I am Head of Release Engineering at IVU Traffic Technologies AG, working on topics in the DevOps and Continuous Delivery context.
Usually, I code in Java and Python.
Aside from computer science, I am very interested in how the new means of communication change society. I am also fascinated by the society's transition from a paper-based one to a mixture of paper-based and digital – and sometimes staggered by what can go wrong during this transition.
In contrast to other computer scientists, I really like to give talks (the original, German version of this one has more than 100.000 views).
All of this suggests that I should have studied some social science in addition to computer science, but even though I didn't, I'm quite happy.
I also like to write and to present information to readers in an easily understandable way. One the results of this passion is my manuscript "A brief Introduction of Neural Networks" which I extend every once in a while. Additionally, I like listening to movie scores.
As a further activity, I'd like to name keeping Ants (unfortunately only available in German) – which seems to suggest itself for a person interested in collective behavior. Anyway, it is really recreative to build a habitat for the ants, then watch the colony grow. I also like to photograph, which is a nice combination with the ant keeping. I also try to be outside a lot and always like to accompany some biologist friends on their field trips. Often I try to cover their findings by photography, which the biologists then like in turn (here are some photos of hornets and of woodpeckers feeding their young ones).
