I’m a Software Engineer from Freiburg, Germany. I work mostly with Python and web technology. I believe in the power of open source and try to contribute whenever I can. I like to visit conferences and give talks about my favorite topics from the Pythonsphere.
In my free time I volunteer for the German Red Cross or get out into the nature and go for a hike.
Projects I contribute to or just like very much
coala - coala provides a unified interface for linting and fixing code with a single configuration file, regardless of the programming languages used. I met the great team of coala at pycon.de 2016 in Munich and have since contributed some code and mentored at Google Summer of Code 2017.
Borg Backup - A backup tool written in Python. Borg is a very powerfull and flexible deduplicating backup tool. I use it at work and at home and have also contributed to this great project.
pytest - The best testrunner for Python and better as most I’ve seen in other languages. Makes it really easy to get into testing in Python and has a powerfull toolbox for experts to really make the most of your tests.
