Hey guys,

my name is Alex, I’m from Germany and I am a passionate software developer for many many years. That’s why I’d like to bring my enthusiasm to other people who are interested in coding.

My career path

I started programming when I was around 15 (2002) and haven’t stopped since then. This was the reason I decided to study information technology at a German university and after my graduation, I worked for several software companies. Today my interests cover topics like .NET, mobile development with Flutter, or DevOps. Most of my posts will be about these areas.

My hobbies

In my free time, I do many different sports like tennis, cycling or skiing in winter. When there is no pandemic, I also like to go to bars or restaurants and to spend much time outside in the sun. Together with my girlfriend and our dog it never gets boring 😊

My journey on Medium

I first started writing at the beginning of 2022. During my career, I spent a lot of time teaching colleagues in different areas of software development and I still enjoy it today. But to reach more people I decided to write about interesting topics that I discover during my work or in my private projects. The community here is very kind and you can learn a lot just by reading through the different articles. That’s why I chose Medium as a platform.

My profile picture

My picture shows a Pokémon called Pachirisu. I was a big fan of the TV show and played the first games on Nintendo Game Boy when they came out but today I’m not a fan anymore. 150 Pokémon are enough in my opinion (just like good movies don’t need a second or third part) 😂
But the Pachirisu is still my default profile picture and I use it nearly everywhere because I think it’s fluffy, cute, and reminds me a bit of my dog.
