I love what I do

CREATING A BETTER TOMORROW.

There is a tomorrow. And I’d love to create it together with you. To shape new ideas. To improve existing or even break down old things to let new things grow. Being creative.

BEING CREATIVE.

Creativity is at the heart of every entrepreneur. Each new business idea is born out of creative acts.  I believe that digital technology is a crucial driver and main tool to bring your ideas to life.

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVICE.

This is why I’m determined to give you the best technological advice for your idea. While taking into account your high demands of pragmatism and actionability.

Consulting

I want to help you to choose the right technological tool to tackle the challenge at hand. For this, I discuss the topic with you until we've reached a common understanding of the task at hand. Based on this, I investigate the market for the right solution. Be it a software product or the right development team: If I don't know it already, I'll find it.

Project execution

Project execution

The software industry has learned a lot about project execution in complex environments. Other industries adapt these methods and frameworks to benefit from proven methodologies and resulting agility.
As a Professional Scrum Master with experience in Scrum and traditional project teams, I lead and encourage teams to reach their goals on time and budget.

Software Engineering

Software Engineering

Be careful, here is the magic: Results come from doing things. And I love doing things so much! I create concepts for your business or technical architctures, I record the software requirements and I even code! Yes, I mean getting my hands dirty. I create software prototypes, design your user interface or implement the reference architecture. This is what I've done in most of my previous projects and I still love it :).

15 Beacon suppliers where you can buy (i)Beacons

Ahhh…that is good. We are getting momentum in the “Internet of Things”-topic. Since Apple announced support for the iBeacon standard and started to test the technology in the apple stores, we see more and more “field” experiments and also media coverage.

During my search for iBeacons (or Beacons or Bluetooth LE devices, clarification follows), I found several suppliers for Beacons. Here is a list of them where you can buy (i)Beacons. Let me know when you are missing some devices.

Cloud Computing – IT Does Matter

Bevor ich mit der eher techniklastigen Serie richitg loslege, möchte ich noch kurz erklären, warum ich glaube, dass sich dem Hype Cloud Computing niemand entziehen werden kann. Dabei möchte ich kurz auf den Hintergrund und die Herkunft von Cloud Computing eingehen.

Im Jahr 2003 hatte Nicholas G. Carr mit seinem Artikel “IT Doesn’t Matter” [1] für einen ordentlichen Schlagabtausch zwischen verschiedenen IT-Experten gesorgt.

Semantic Web – Appetizer

Ich beschäftige mich derzeit in einem Forschungsprojekt an der Hochschule Darmstadt mit Semantic Web. Bald gibt es hier Content über das Thema! :)

Die Zukunft ist voll Vernetzt

Internet of Things ist meiner Meinung nach das Thema, das in den nächsten Jahren am meisten Einfluss auf unser tägliches Leben haben wird. Weitere Inhalte werden kommen.

Cloud Computing – Hype oder bald Standard

Mein erster Blog-Eintrag soll sich direkt mal mit dem derzeit ziemlich gehypten Thema Cloud Computing beschäftigen. Ich plane eine kleine Serie über das Thema “was ist eigentlich Cloud” und werde einige Cloud Techniken und Anbieter unter die Lupe nehmen.

Zunächst aber etwas zur Motivation:
