Skills

  • Mono Logo

Throughout my studies, freelance work, side-projects and being a full-time dev I gained expertise in various areas.

  • ObjC/Swift

    All eyes on iOS technology. In the past 5 years I have been focussing on developing for the iOS platform. For instance I was involved in developing a Data Security App with style, an AdServing SDK and the SoundCloud app.
    Currently, I am working on the mobile suite of a publishing platform for magazines, catalogs, and newspapers. All the new components of this application are written in Swift

  • C

    Every time you get down to low-level iOS coding you are challenged with C with all it's beauty and demand. Perfect tool for performance boosting and a must for all expensive operations.

  • Java/Android

    I first got in touch with Java during my studies. It really helps to introduce the concept of Object-Oriented-Programming to oneself and makes you familiar with the main computer science design patterns. Now I deepen my Java knowledge by developing Andriod apps.

  • PHP/MySQL

    PHP and MySQL were my companions back when I first entered the world of web development. They helped me implementing several projects from tiny portfolio sites to custom CMS for businesses.

  • Arduino

    I love hacking things and Arduino is the best choice for that. It eases the access into micro processor programming and encourages you to communicate with a wide range of sensors - just for the fun of it!

  • Javascript

    The power of JavaScript is simply awesome and it is stunning what kind of crazy stuff you can achieve by using this interpreted language. I have played around with it mainly for sleek effects. Next one in line: Event-driven I/O server-side JavaScript with node.js

  • Git

    Collaborating and working in larger coding teams requires reliable versioning control. Git solves that problem and makes your coder's life a lot easier and your repository clean and fresh.

  • XHTML/CSS

    As a freelancer I was involved in many website projects, where I improved my skills in XHTML and CSS. Besides the markup I also designed some web layouts with the help of Adobe Photoshop.

  • Ruby on Rails

    Started teaching myself Ruby on Rails lately. It speeds up your web development and makes you more efficient. I plan to use it for my future web projects and experiment with heroku for deployment.

  • Ruby

    In Ruby everything's an object and I am enjoying working with it more and more. Currently our whole CI pipeline is powered by Ruby including the automated test suite.
