I am a Software Engineer living in Berlin, Germany. Work-wise, I am particularly interested in front-end development, yet I am just as capable on the back end.

Apart from computers, I am an avid cyclist and I love practising foreign languages (hence me living abroad). Speaking of which, I am fluent in French and English. I used to know some Spanish. I recently picked German up.

I am a huge fan of comic books, The Walking Dead being my all-time favorite. I also read novels, mostly sci-fi. Besides all that, I occasionally play the guitar.

I write blog posts on this very website not only about computer science but also broader topics such as the environment, bikes or travels. There are RSS and Atom feeds that you can subscribe to. I usually write a few times a year. Feedback is greatly appreciated.

As far as I know, he was one of the early contributors to it, and remains to this day one of the main contributors. Docker has no secrets for...

  3. FTP, VO2 max, MAP, max HR: what are those?

    Yeah, I'm into cycling. Road cycling, to be precise. It's been two years now. I've never felt so good in my life. I've become a sportsman. Me, who used to smoke half a pack a day and do no exercise at all. So after two years of ramp-up, I have now reached a stage at which I'm into improving my performance through data. Of course I already got...
