Hi! 👋

My name is Max, sometimes also known as Phoenix616 or The Moep.

I am a 28 year old software engineer from Germany.

I am creating lots of different open source stuff out of pizza and beer, mostly in Java and for Minecraft but I have some other random projects as well, just check out my repos! :)

Most of the projects are done for my own (completely free) survival Minecraft server (Lots of its code can be found here and is open source too!) I have also written a good amount of Minecraft related libraries like InventoryGui, MineDown and lang and am currently maintaining ChestShop 3 and TravelPortals. On top of all of these projects I contributed to Bukkit, Spigot and Paper too! (See my own Paper fork Origami for even more experimental patches!)

Hours invested into different projects and tasks:

I also stream on, normally it's gaming but you might catch me coding on Minecraft stuff as well! I usually just stream in my native language German but I have spoken English for more than half of my live so just ask and hang out!

3 sponsors are funding Phoenix616’s work.
