Hello there. I'm that bearded young man in the picture above. I currently live in Frankfurt am Main, Germany and am currently employed as a software developer at CoSee GmbH. My work there is mainly focused on writing JEE applications, though Python has been a steady companion.
I reckon my greatest skill is my love for clean, good code. Whatever languages and frameworks I might encounter in my personal and professional future, this skill will always accompany me. Readability induces maintainability induces good code induces less headache. Simple as that.
To give you an idea of how I operate, I'll provide you with a set of things I find worth mentioning about me

I am aware of the fact that I have yet seen only so little of my profession. And there a few things I want to do, but haven't got around to due to temporal or personal constraints, and I would list them here ‐ They are as important to my professional identity as the things I CAN do.
As mentioned earlier, I haven't yet got around to really participate in open-source development due to my investment in my current employment. I do have a few coding projects I'm working on, whenever I have the spare time (there's more to life than code, after all).
During my ongoing time at CoSee GmbH I was involved in a variety of projects, which includes a web-crawling JEE application, an Android app, the delivery platform and web services behind that app. For quick tests and administrative tasks, I have also developed a wide array of python scripts. I am the lead developer of the delivery platform and had responsibility for it from it's inception.
I did my mandatory internship and authored my bachelor thesis at COFINPRO. I evaluated various NoSQL concepts for saving financial instrument data, and showed a possible implementation in Apache HBase (a column store database). The grade on the thesis was 1.3, the second best grade achievable
At my first software development job, I was invloved in the development of a sports-related social network, based on the LAMP stack.
I am working on my master's degree in part-time.
Finished my bachelor's degree with a final grade of 2.0. Though I pursued many interests in the field, I had a focus on software engineering.
