Hi, I am Oliver. ๐Ÿ‘‹

On my Twitter profile I use the following as my bio – Loves coffee, code and a good conversation.

These three things pretty much cover what I enjoy most and try to get as often as possible. It is even better, when I can combine at least two of them. Coffee and an hour-long hacking session are among the most relaxing things I can think of. Just as satisfying and relaxing is a good cup of coffee and a long chat with my wife, a friend or an interesting new person. And the third picture in the series below might suggest that there is a 4th thing that I really enjoy. It is up to you to determine who is a big idol to me. 1, 2, 3, 4,…

About this blog

This is my personal tech blog where I write about all the technical topics I am interested in and the side projects I am working on in my spare time. The opinions expressed are my own and don’t relate to my employer.

In a former incarnation of this blog I set the topics more precisely. I won’t do this again this time. Too many things are interesting to me, and they are changing to fast. If I were looking for a constant, it would be Python and a reluctance to tinker with hardware myself. Therefore, I assume that the programming language Python and its application will appear more often.

The business side of my life

My day job is being the CTO of alfa Media Partner GmbH. We are a leading vendor for media and newspaper solutions with a 40-year-long tradition. And it is a pleasure for me to lead a large development and IT team located in Rรถdermark, Munich, Koblenz and Kiel. If you want to reach out to me concerning business related topics – contact me on LinkedIn or via our company homepage.


You can find me on Twitter, GitHub, Dev.to, Instagram, Mastodon and Signal. And for sure on the next social media network that is about to fight for our attention – at least for a few weeks until it annoys me.

Some articles will be cross posted to Medium and Dev.to. I like the communities over there, but I prefer my personal space too.
