I work as a software architect, team lead, and instructor since 1999. In 2002, I created a further education round at my company. I give seminars since 2002. My first seminars were about proprietary management software, but seminars for Python and C++ followed immediately.
In my spare time, I like to write articles about C++, Python, and Haskell. I also like to speak at conferences. I publish weekly on my English Modernes Cpp and the German blog, hosted by Heise Developer.
Since 2016 I am an independent instructor giving seminars about modern C++ and Python. I published several books in various languages to modern C++ and concurrency, in particular. Due to my profession, I always search for the best way to teach modern C++.
