ROSSConf Vienna | Co-Organizer
ROSSConf is a one day conference/hackathon to get more people submit their first contribution to an open source project by inviting maintainers or core contributors and their projects to join a group of around 60 attendees. Together with Floor Drees, the initiator of the event, Laura Gaetano and Aaron Cruz we invited Katrina Owen, Michal Papis, Lisa Passing, Piotr Szotkowski and Arne Brasseur to Vienna to work with the attendees on projects like RVM, Diaspora, exercism, reek and Yaks.
ROSSConf Berlin | Co-Organizer
After the success of the Vienna edition we decided to take the event to Berlin and invited another group of developers, with an amazing line up of projects including Bundler and Ruby, to hack on open source.
Engine Yard, Inc | Application Support Engineer
As a Application Support Engineer and part of the global 24/7 Support team, I was working closely with customers, partners and infrastructure providers, through the support ticketing system and via phone/Skype, helping them set up and configure their environments as well as deploy their applications and help resolve issues through out the whole stack if they occur. The work also included proactive monitoring of instances, systems and services, like web and application servers, databases and background processes on managed environments.
After the acquisition of OpDemand and their Docker based PaaS Deis, my focus was on working with customers and provision their clusters on AWS and containerize their applications to deploy them.

Tupalo.com | Web Developer
As part of the development team I worked on implementing importers for partners, optimize the site for search engines as well as fixing bugs and refactor the Ruby based application. I was also working close with the community managers to help them with technical requests and data and once in a while write posts for the community blog.
parkside | Web Developer
I was working with and on their proprietary CMS based on ColdFusion and Flex to host, maintain and launch websites for customers. Always working closely with designers and QA on the front end parts of the projects.
video2brain In this project I mainly did bug fixing and site optimization in back and front end.
all i need I was part of the development team for launching the website for the organic green tea drink.
wollzelle GmbH | Web Developer
Maintaining sites of customers, implementing custom solutions and training them was part of my job as well as improving and maintaining the Ruby and Rails based digital asset management application Fluxiom.com. Implementing new features in the Prototype & Scriptaculous based front and on the server side was part of the work on Fluxiom as well as handling day to day tasks for it like customer support and operations tasks.
Fluxiom As one of my first full-stack projects it allowed me to apply and learn skills in a variety of environments. One notable feature I implemented is the "Inbox" to allow uploads for unauthenticated users and approve the uploads by authenticated users which makes use of the nginx upload progress module. Another project for Fluxiom was an OS X Dashboard Widget for Mac users and a Google Chrome Extension. Other work included improving the overall user experience on the front end, improving the backend along with it, optimize the infrastructure and architecture.
Gucci.com At wollzelle I had also the pleasure to be part of the team improving and adding new features for special product requirements, collections or the overall experience of the JSON driven front end on Gucci.com.
Casinos Austria International To better manage content, especially their casinos in various locations, on their website a soft relaunch was made with a BrowserCMS based solution. I took over most of the backend development including templates and work closely with the front end developer.
RAUMKUNST For RAUMKUNST another custom solution was developed based on BrowserCMS to manage their projects. In addition to implementing the back and front end, I trained the customer to manage the content on their website.
icomedias GmbH | Web Developer
My main focus at icomedias was front end development for various clients ensuring cross-browser compatibility, while retaining valid and semantic HTML & CSS. Another big part was relaunching sites with WAI conformance in mind.
All projects shared a proprietary CMS and a XML/XSLT based template-engine.
Land Steiermark A relaunch 2007 of the portal required reworking XSLT templates to semantic HTML and ensuring compliance with WAI guidelines. Stylesheets were written to allow flexible styling for different municipal authorities.
Rentenbank Rentenbank relaunched it's website 2007 requiring multilingual templates and a accessible front end for their customers. A minor highlight is the almost purely CSS driven menu.
