First I want to thank Mark Teichmann who forwarded the “BIF-baton” to me. If you’re don’t know what BIF (Blog-It-Forward) challenge is , please got to Moshe Navehs Blog, who initiate this journey around SCN people.
I grew up near Eisenach in Thuringia. It’s called the “green heart of Germany”, because it’s in the middle (don’t take “middle” in a mathematical sense 😉 ) of Germany and consists for a large part of Thuringian forest and its secondary mountain. Maybe this is a reason why I don’t really need to live in a big city and I’m fine to look out of the window and see some green trees.
Around the Wartburg, which is the symbol for Eisenach, are a lot of interesting stories from the middle age. At this time Germany was fragmented into hundreds of small princedom, where most of the people spoke with different dialects. Martin Luther translated the New Testament from Latin into German, during his exile at the Wartburg. This was a starting point for one German language.
During my study (appl. dev.) I moved to North Rhine-Westphalia. Now I live in the beautiful city of Siegburg. It’s a small city located near Cologne and Bonn. As you can see I like taking photos, especially with long exposures.
Tech side in my life
I guess I’m a geek like most of people here on SCN and love to use any kind of electronic device which blinks or can make sounds.
My first contact with SAP was in 2006 developing with BSP framework. Over the years I’ve done less and less programming and more project management. So I get in touch with mostly every ERP module. Today I’m totally interested in new technology like HANA (of course) and Mobility.
Which thing do you absolutely want to achieve in life?
Do a base jump from a slackline between two rocks with a wing suit! So basically what these guys doing: youtube-trailer (edit: Because of comments by some people, I just want to beg you to take my answer here not literally, but take it in figurative sense. Achieving something in life has definitely a much bigger meaning than jumping from high altitude back to earth)
What do you enjoy most in your work and why?
As a developer you can create stunning programs. It’s like build something out of LEGO bricks, when I was a kid. 😉
Questions by Mark
What was the most elaborate meal that you cooked by yourself recently?
Well, not very elaborate meal but I like to cook stuffed chicken breast with cream cheese or any kind of pasta bake (when it has to go fast).
But my favorite is to bake various chocolate muffins and apple cakes!
Are you planning to use (or already using) a mobile device at your work? If yes, which one and for what?
Well, it would be interesting to have only one device for work and private life, but it could be very scary at the same time. Today I’m fine not to have a company phone, because of the security policy w/ a 12 chars, alpha-numeric password (including special chars!!). I could imagine that this is not the best user experience when you just want to write a private message. To unlock the phone it could take longer than writing the actual content. 😉
Which engine sound do you enjoy the most?
Always my current car. 😉
