Here is a quick overview of my current status and why there are little updates in the blog. Also some great news.

Talking at Conferences

As you know, if you follow along my stuff, I spoke about coding guidelines at TalkOff Conference in Lille, France in January this year. The conference was organized very well and I had a lot of fun. Besides that I met a lot of great people. Thanks again for the invitation. You can find the slides here.

I am also very happy to be invited to UX Munich where I will speak about style guides in general and how you can be friends with designers. Check out the talk’s description on their website. There are a lot great people speaking at the conference as for example Vitaly Friedmann from Smashing Magazine and Nishant Kothary who was part of the team that redesigned Also Bastian Allgeier will be speaking, who wrote an article for The Nitty Gritty just recently.
This conference will take place in Munich, Germany and will be helt next week. So check it out quickly and get a ticket!

Later in April I will present at Front-Trends 2013 in Warsaw in Poland and yet again some top speakers of our industry will present there, too. Check out the speakers page to find Lea Verou, Faruk Ateş, Jake Archibald and a lot of others.

If you want me to speak at your conference, I’d be happy to submit a proposal. Just contact me.

.net-Awards Nomination

I am very happy to be one of the nominees of this year’s .net-Awards in the category “Young Developer of the Year”. Check out the website and vote what you like.
Thanks to everyone who proposed me to be nominated, this really means a lot to me. <3

Freelance Work

A couple of months ago I decided to leave /gebrüderheitz and do freelance work exclusively for some time starting in April. I want to focus a bit more on Open Source projects and work on some side-projects. I am really excited about the projects that I’ll be working on and about the re-organisation of my life.
The pipeline of actual client projects is still kind of free, so drop me a mail to or use the contact form if you are interested in working with me. Please see the “Hire me” section on my website to get a quick overview of what I like to work on.

This all and some projects besides my normal work schedule keep me from updating my blog more often. I hope to write some more technical articles soon.
