I am working as iOS developer for Durated where I’m responsible for all things iOS: from concepts and prototypes over planning and design decisions, beta and usability tests to the release.
I am 34 years old, have worked as a full-time iOS developer since March 2012 (iOS contract work since 2009) and before that as a web developer for over six years. I have got extensive knowledge about web services, databases and interacting with APIs.
I hold the degree “Diplom Informatiker (FH)”, which is roughly equivalent to a Master’s degree in computer science.
I have contributed to hockeyapp.net (a service for mobile app developers), which is run by friends of mine. I was an early adopter and contributor to TextMate and manned the MacroMates booth at MacWorld ’06 with two friends. I have written the TextMate Basics Tutorial.
I’m regularly attending conferences, including WWDC 2011 and 2013 in San Francisco, Apple Tech talks 2011 in Berlin, SXSW 2010 in Austin, JSConf 2010 in Berlin, NSConf 2013 & 2014 in the UK, UIKonf 2013 & 2014 in Berlin and more. I’m also a regular at the Berlin CocoaHeads.
Oh, and I made this little iOS app, called kompanion. It lets you capture moments and thoughts including location, pictures and notes without posting them to the internet.
You can find me on LinkedIn and Xing, Github and Twitter.
