Staff Engineer at Jimdo. Phd Physics
I love building great software products that helps people. I have 10+ years of experience in software engineering and 5+ years building on cloud-native platforms (AWS). Before working for businesses, I pursued my PhD in theoretical physics, where I found my passion for building software products.
In software engineering, there are different approaches that can lead to working software. Here, I try to summarize the one that I prefer. While some of the following is arguably proven to be more successful, these values are mostly reversible, meaning the opposite is also viable and preferred by others
Automation over processes, especially in testing and deployments
Room for experimentation over trying to get everything right the first time
Clean code and architecture over extensive documentation
Reliable teams over individual contributors
Just as in the Agile Manifesto, I acknowledge that, while there is value in the items on the right, I value the items on the left more.
