Hey. Prepare to be bored out of your mind.

Name is Jan, currently finishing up my Masters Degree in Business Information Systems at TU Darmstadt. I’ve been writing software for quite some time, did 6ish years of Ruby working while studying. Got into functional programming since it fits my approach to problem solving and seems to keep complexity at bay, mostly. Currently I write a lot of Elixir.

Got a soft spot for DevOps and making things work really well when the rubber hits the road. Also am sort of a performance nerd in that way, I love benchmarking and optimizing.

During my studies I touched a lot of networking technology and I’m really interested in Distributed Systems, how they operate and thinking through the case where things go wrong.

Currently I’m working and learning alongside the great people of Grandcentrix part-time in addition to my studies.
