With more than 19 years of experience in software development, a Master of Science in Business Information Systems and one in Management Information Systems, I enjoy working on large software development projects in the field of e-commerce.
I prefer to work using Agile/Scrum/Kanban practices and am particularly interested in Artificial Intelligence and Cloud Architecture.
My preferred languages are Java, PHP, Python and C#. My tech stack includes various backend and frontend development frameworks, database administration, Docker, Pytorch and AWS. My knowledge in Adobe Creative Cloud Software completes my profile.
With Java I develop backend and frontend software. I use web frameworks (e.g. Spring), JavaServer pages (JSP) and service-oriented architecture/web services (SOAP/REST).
Dependency injection (DI) and Java Persistence API (JPA) are my daily work as a fullstack developer.
Whether Wordpress, Magento, Magento2, Laravel, Symfony or Typo3 or Vanilla - the development of software written in PHP has accompanied me more than half my life.
In search of good books on CGI/Perl I found my first book on "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor", then still in version 3. Besides creating various plug-ins for frameworks and CMS, I also found my passion for database systems through this programming language.
I learned to appreciate Python during my time at university.
I started developing Python by creating Django based economic experiments using oTree. It is the ideal language for developing applications for machine learning, computer vision and natural language processing e.g. using PyTorch.
I acquired my knowledge about the development of C# applications during my studies, in project work (calculation of delivery profiles for an automobile manufacturer using LINQ) and for the creation of the software in the context of my master thesis (experimental software).
Just like the development of open source C programs, this is currently not my daily work, but I am open for further knowledge in this field.
... but nobody said it was easy. That is my solution stack:
Year 1985. Born in Zwickau, Sachsen raised in Hamm, North rhine westphalia.
Went to school at the Kettlerschule and the Gymnasium Hammonense.
An example project I am working on:
"A consistent, cross-channel shopping experience for customers requires an interlocking of all systems. In most cases, the challenge is to link long-standing classic branch processes with the e-commerce systems that were set up in parallel at the time and the numerous new processes and systems.The solution can be an order management system: aroma® is consistently designed to integrate and control all processes along the entire retail value chain, enabling companies to react flexibly to changes in customer buying behavior at any time."
Development of an international information- and community portal to interlink higher education institutions (HEIs), students and enterprises to provide them with information tailored according to their expressed needs, funded within the Action 4 of the Erasmus Mundus Programme.

The youth portal H.O.T existed from 2001 to 2010, developed from a cooperation between the Protestant youth work in the church district of Hamm and the city of Hamm.
H.O.T was the abbreviation for Hamm Online for teenagers. In addition to organizing events for teenagers, the teenagers operated an Internet service, which they supervised editorially and technically.
During my time at arvato scm I got certified as a "Magento Certified M1 Developer" and implemented various extensions for the store systems Magento Enterprise and Magento 2.
In this period I developed and administered the online stores for large companies: Among them a large Taiwanese manufacturer of computer hardware, an international hardware and software development and technology company from Washington and a fashion company from East Westphalia.
During my time as student assistant at the Groupware Competence Center of the University of Paderborn, I completed a certification as Lotus Notes 8 developer.
