Cloud Foundry Summit
Cloud computing and in particular cloud platform technologies such as Cloiud Foundry and Kubernetes were discussed in various sessions throughout these two interesting days.
Participating in the panel discussion of this event, I argued not to forget the human factor when talking about Cyber security in our enterprises. We can have the best digital defence mechanisms and systems, however, if we cannot educate our employees to sensibly use technology, we will not be able to protect our systems and networks properly.
Traffic Data Analysis (Greater Stuttgart Region, Germany)
Unfortunately I spent a lot of time on the road every day due to my 60km commute distance. To reduce time in traffic, I built a small recording software monitoring the region's hotspots every 10min. Based on this data several analysis were compiled to show the optimal time to leave home or the office to avoid unnecessary waiting times.
Print media and TV got to know of my analysis and have reported about it:

BNote on GitHub
Back in 2011 a small extension to a big band's website was created to organize the rehearsals, gigs, participation, meeting points and more. When other bands saw the system, they wanted to have it on their website, too. And so the extension became its own software. Up until 2013 the initial bugs and feature requests were fixed and BNote was made available to a broader public on GitHub. Since then the organization tool has evolved to serve choirs, bands, schools, universitites, ensembles and many more groups having to deal with the daily coordination of many people in culture.
SAP Coding Masters
In Berlin we had a lot of fun coding and solving the challenges in many creative ways. Winning this contest (today dubbed as Hackathon) was unexpected, but a special honor!
