So far I’ve worked for dozens of clients on small and large-scale products and have experience in helping teams and products to succeed. My front-end development and project management expertise is very valued by my clients.
Recently, I founded Colloq to pursue my view on ethics, values, technical best-practices and organizing modern work and today I work half time on this project while serving clients’ needs the rest of the time. Colloq is an event platform that lets you explore the valuable content from conferences, meetups and more.
For over five years I participated as one of five hosts in the German Workingdraft podcasts and recorded dozends of episodes about front-end work including a lot of guest experts before I resigned in 2018 to focus on other projects.
Web Development Reading List
Since a couple of year already I’m authoring the WDRL, a weekly newsletter for the frontend developer community that’s read by thousands of people and very well-known.
I also write a monthly summary for Smashing Magazine, one of the best known webdesign resources today and wrote several other articles for them already.
I regularly write articles for magazines like Smashing Magazine, net magazine, Screenguide, T3N, CSS-Tricks, and have co-authored two books so far.
In the past I’ve spoken at several conferences.
I have years of experience in organizing smaller and larger inclusive tech events.
Together with four other people I organize an after-work front-end development conference called NightlyBuild since 2014 once a year. It has been sold out each year and features 5–6 international speakers.
The PUBKON conference was one of the most known and largest German publishing events, and took place yearly between 2012 and 2015. The three day event featured 15-20 speakers—a well-crafted mixture of high-level speakers and new talents. It included a full day of in-depth workshops the day before the conference. I was one of three organizers and I discontinued our work on it in 2015 to focus my effort on the front-end industry which I’m working in.
InDesign User Group Munich Meetups
For five years I co-organized the InDesign User Group Munich meetups together in a team of three with about 6–7 events per year.
MODX User Group Munich Meetups
The MODX User Group Munich meetups (~4 per year) were organized by me for about two years before I handed over the group’s administration to a colleague.
