About me, myself and I πŸ‘¨πŸΌβ€πŸ’»

header

I'm a web engineer from Germany, heavily interested in all things around the web, my favorite tunes and writing about tech. Currently, I'm employed as a full-stack web engineer at πŸš€GraphCMS. When I'm not working on awesome things like stuff for work or personal/open-source projects (I recommend checking out Node.js best practices, we've just hit 20k stars), I'm usually listening to some great podcasts (I'm binging Syntax right now) or learning whatever fascinates me.

Selection of tech I use

I usually describe myself as an engineer; that's basically what I've been doing since I was a kid.

  • TypeScript: I really enjoy using TypeScript for all of my projects, regardless of size or use case, because it enables me to ship better features faster while gaining guarantees about how my code will run in production

  • Node.js: Obviously, as a web developer of today, I wouldn't come around using Node.js. There's not much to say more than it being awesome at what it does, you might have also noticed my involvement to some known projects around its ecosystem

  • Docker: It doesn't get easier than running applications in the same environment, regardless of being in development or production. Docker is one of my favorite tools to use for developing and deploying all the things

  • Kubernetes: Deploying applications to the cloud, as easy as pie, K8s does the job. I'm all-in on all things Kubernetes, working on a wide array of projects based on the K8s ecosystem

  • GraphQL: Fetching and mutating data with built-in type validation, using codegen tools and building modern services with ease, GraphQL is one of the core technologies of my projects and, obviously, my job

  • React: I've had a marvellous experience building web applications using React, it has gotten even better with the recent introduction of hooks, making so many things way easier, it's a joy!

  • Go & Rust: Since there's a lot of use cases where you just need that extra bit of performance and safety, I'm currently learning Golang & Rust for building scalable web services, especially in combination with GraphQL and other tools around modern backend web development.
