I'm an open source enthusiast with a preference for statically typed languages, testing and build automation. I like to learn from others as well as sharing knowledge as much as i can.
i love to work on open source projects whenever it is possible for me, besides being a father, hobby gardener and woodworker.
I'm feeling at home on the JVM and my current language of choice is Kotlin but I'm always. open to learn and try new stuff. It's a lot of fun for me to continuously try new tools, frameworks, libraries and don't be afraid to try and learn new languages.
Furthermore I'm a big fan of build and test automation and continuous integration/deployment. I think I would call it my hobbyhorse, thats also the reason why I published several example projects, libraries and docs as well as giving talks at conferences and meetups around these topics.
