  • About me

    I've been in the web since around 1992. I love it. I love seeing how things evolve and succeed there. I love to see how people work with it. I love being a part of it. I love working with people.

    I am a Mac guy.

  • Technology

    Starting 2006, I've built up the XING engineering department up to > 100 people today. I also introduced Ruby on Rails to XING the same year. I planned and initated the transformation from a monolithic Perl application to a Ruby-based platform.
    Today, we use Perl, Ruby, Rails, Java, Scala, Elasticsearch, MySQL, Riak and some more stuff to deliver professional networking to a lot of people who really matter.

    I still do some programming on my own, however not on the professional level my team has. I love creating 3D pictures like the ones you see above representing our system architecture.
