Hi, I'm Tobias and located in south germany. Most time of my carreer I've worked as a Software Developer on Java based applications, but did also a short excursion to the SAP and Ruby universe. Today I work as Development Engineer and try to solve challenges with different tools on Windows and Linux systems. I was an active Open Source committer for a few years, but I decided to retire to have more time for my family and other hobbies. You can find examples of my past OS engagement below.
If you have any questions or feedback on the blog or just want to talk about software engineering, feel free to contact me. Please be aware that I'll ignore every headhunter message and block the sender instantly.
Some Open Source engagements
These are some Open Source projects where I am / was participating.
Since 2019 I'm involved in Eclipse Krazo, the Jakarta MVC reference implementation. I started as contributor and got elected as a Commiter in late 2019. I have voluntarily withdrawn as Committer in Juli 2023.

Besides working on the reference implementation Eclipse Krazo, I'm also participating in the development of Jakarta MVC, the associated specification. Most contributions to this project were tutorials and documentation as well as some talks in german Java User Groups. I was a committer from 2021 until July 2023 for this project.

The mvc-toolbox is a collection of extensions for Jakarta MVC and Eclipse Krazo. Since a while I'm one of the project maintainers.

During spring 2021 I couldn't find a good dashboard providing me the latest COVID seven day incidences. They were relevant for knowing which rules had to be followed in which county or town. Therefore I wrote a small webapp using latest Jakarta EE technology which read the API that was also utilized by the official RKI dashboard. Since it was just a quickly implemented piece of personal software, don't expect high quality ;)

The cards42.org project wants to help software developer and architects to think about specific aspects of their software architecture. I participated there a lot as writer for card descriptions and did some performance tuning on the website.
