Junedev

I am a back-end developer from Germany. Even after some years I am still fascinated with the endless possibility of things you can achieve with the few elemantary building blocks of any given programming language. I love solving complex problems while keeping the code easy-to-read and simple whenever possible.

My motto is "Life is too short to be in a bad mood."

On this website you can read some blog posts and get to know my old toy projects. You can also find a collection of bits and bytes of code I found useful.

Status

I am currently working as a Go developer in Frankfurt. I am replacing old PhP monolithic applications with microservices shipped with Docker. Before I switched to Go I worked as a Node.js developer and I am still missing the amazing speed of development.
I try to stay in touch with what's going on the the frontend world but I am still waiting for this build-chain nightmare and Redux horror to go away before I will dive deeper again. I haven't really found a permanent home in OSS yet so feel free to contact me if you have suggestions where I could be useful.
