About Me

I strive to develop software that is accessible to everyone.

That's why I have specialized in web development and put special emphasis on accessibility, usability and performance. However, the speed of development should not suffer, which is why I love to automate things and try out new supporting tools whenever possible.

Even though I am young I already have over 10 years of coding experience and been building websites for over 5 years now.

Learning new things every day is for me the key to developing the best software available! You don't believe me? Check out all my projects ;)

In my spare time, I like to ride and repair my mountain- and road bike 🚲.

My Skills

My Employers

HPI Schul-Cloud

02/2017 - 03/2020 Web Developer

My first task was to make minor UI adjustments and design the UI of new tools, but also to implement it. As time went by I was assigned more and more responsibilities and now I am one of the longest active developers in the project. Sadly, the development team changed a couple of times in the last 2 years, which resulted in some really bad code and architectures. For this reason I was allowed to invest more and more time in the documentation and onboarding of new developers and I am now one of the lead developers in the complete rewrite of the frontend.  My task is to integrate the learnings, from the first version, into the second version and prevent the failures we had done before. This means that I develop a new architecture for the project together with a small team,  I integrate workflow supporting tools (e.g. for documentation or git workflows) and develop concepts on how to optimize our code quality and test coverage.

10/2016 - 01/2017 Angular App Developer

I integrated Wikipedia and Youtube into the "Quissen" Android App and implemented some UI and UX improvements. I also adjusted some backend data structures for new features, like scheduled publishing. The techstack included Angular 1 with the Framework Ionic for the App, and Wordpress as a CMS with some Plugins to serve the Content via REST to the App.
