As a Microsoft Certified Web, Windows and Service Developer, I have over 15 years of professional experience in designing and developing secure distributed applications. This includes SmartClients (WPF, Silverlight, WinForms, Windows Store Apps), WebClients (ASP.NET MVC/WebForms/REST), Content Management (DotNetNuke/Orchard/SharePoint), WebServices (traditional and WCF) and Identity Providers (Windows Identity Foundation).
I've started my career as a software developer already in school on my C64 where I worked mainly in assembler. I moved to VB3 as soon as I got my first PC and later to .net and C# when the .net framework came available. Since my move to SDX AG I was in extremely different projects from banking over transport to avionics, from scrum to waterfall, and in roles like a developer, lead, architect, and TFS administrator. Eventually, I accepted an offer from Universal-IT Services GmbH as a senior software developer / -architect.
Since the beginning, security was one of my particular interests. At SDX AG I was giving security awareness training and web developer security training and I did provide code security reviews for our customers. At Universal-IT Services GmbH I’m one of the source code reviewer responsible for ensuring correct, maintainable and secure code before shipping to production.
