Who am I?

My name is Ben, living near Bad Hersfeld, Germany and I`m a Software-Developer…

I`ve been into computers since the late 1980s, when my parents gave me a Commodore 64 to Christmas in 1987 and I`m still using it! 🙂 Fairly short after that, I wrote my first program in BASIC with the help of my father. This was the turning point which inspired me and made me love computers and technology in general!

I graduated 2001 from school with the Abitur and had an apprenticeship as an IT-Administrator for a big company in the automotive industry. Shortly after that I studied computer science at the University of Applied Sciences Fulda, which was a really great time.

After my studies I worked for a SAP Consulting company in Kassel, Germany, most of the time writing ABAP code for a big inhouse project. I`ve learned a lot and wrote my thesis there entitled “Test-Driven Development as a programming- and design discipline to optimize the software development process“! The time there was nice, but it wasn`t the right thing for me, didn`t like ABAP and I`m more into object-oriented development and I`m quite comfortable in the Microsoft world and started transitioning  the biggest part of my development efforts to .NET! ( C# FTW 🙂 )

I currently work for a Retail Solutions Software-Company since June 2010. My company gives me the opportunity to be part of challenging and interesting projects and is helping to advance my expertise on a daily basis.

During my sparetime I like sports, doing workout three times a week, love to go to the movies, spending time with family and friends and checking out the newest technology 😉
