The author of this blog is an ok-ish software craftsman (primarly in the Java environment), happily living in Berlin, currently (and for the forseeable future) working at Solactive AG (Berlin). Besides producing (hopefully) well-crafted code, he likes to learn new stuff (currently especially Japanese, later perhaps also Latin), reading, cinema, theatre (watching, not acting), cooking, writing, board gaming with friends and a few other things…

He considers himself an LGBTQ ally, being all for diversity, especially in his professional environment, since different backgrounds and experiences help us to see problems from various angles and find better solutions for everyone. Additionally, he simply doesn’t care who does what with whom – as long as it’s consensual.

Also for some strange reasons he seems to have had a clown for breakfast, otherwise it’s hard to explain why he would write this in 3rd person. Let’s hope it’s not the majestic plural, as such things can be contagious.
