I am programming software since the 1980s and successfully rejected all calls for management roles and remained hands-on until today.
Most of my career I was a contracting “Enterprise Developer” and the introduction of “new” languages, frameworks and concepts is very slow in this field. Once I decided to develop my own products I was free of such constraints and ventured into all sorts of paradigms, be it “NoSQL” or “Functional” and evaluating all the latest ideas, crazy or not. In other words, I am having fun developing software.
I was born in Vienna and live in Austria, Kenya and Portugal.
