New Blog

Post image

You may have noticed, that I had not much time to blog about something in the past months… One thing was, that we all need money, so I had to work very much. And as some of you know, I’m also studying in the evenings.

Key is (not just to use new swag), to simplify blogging for me, so I can put more time in the articles and less in managing the blog itself. I’m not much of a frontend developer or a designer, so the design will maybe not impress you ;)

Big news: Currently for hire!

If you are looking a motivated Java/Scala dev in the area of Zurich (Switzerland), we maybe should talk ;)

The relaunch was, for me, some kind of personal retrospective, where I read all my old posts and found out that I’m probably a better webmaster than a writer…
