Welcome to my personal blog!

I am doing software development in many areas, with my main fields of experience being cross-platform software (C++/Qt), Android apps (native), Linux & DevOps (Bash/Python/Ruby, Docker, ...).

Open Source is one of my passions -- I am a developer and maintainer of many open projects and regularly start contributing to additional ones. Support me on my mission! My other favourite activities include photography and being outdoor as much as possible. I am too volunteering at the local fire department. I went to school at HTL Braunau (Electronics / Software Engineering & Mobile Computing), studied at FH Hagenberg (Mobile Computing) and work currently at Felgo.

Kodi is a media player which can be installed on your computer, on your phone and also on your Raspberry Pi! It is free & open source software and available at kodi.tv.

Kodi features a special action to quickly play random media called PartyMode. PartyMode starts playback immediately with random tracks out of the music library. The action accepts either music or video as parameter. Unfortunately video is not working at all, so it’s not possible to play random videos with the PartyMode feature.

If you have the goal to play random videos (movies, series, episodes) or music with Kodi, here you can find a solution. You will be able to start random playback from a remote client, shell or within Kodi itself. Kodi has a feature called Smart Playlists which allows to create a solution that is superior to a simple PartyMode for videos.

To be honest – this is a static site without any fonts, javascript or css loaded externally.
I use and write posts to be published on this site mainly offline, so it is important that all works here too.

No analytics library or any other tracker gets loaded when you visit this blog. Hence this blog doesn’t and can’t keep records of anything you do here.
