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.

Projects and publications

Here are some public available projects I contributed to, maintained or developed.

2048 [HTML5/Crossplatform, Ubuntu Touch]

On 1. December 2019 I added the initial version of the popular 2048 puzzle game to OpenStore. The code is based on the original 2048 implementation. I contributed to the 2048 project (upstream) as well - various improvements for mobile usage. Improvements where accepted, merged and now part of the project!

Slide up/down/left/right to move all tiles. When two tiles with the same number touch, they merge into one! The goal is to reach a 2048 tile and score as high as possible! The game is available in multiple languages: English, German & Russian. It also features night mode.

Save features:

  • Highscore
  • Current game state - you can close 2048 when leaving the bus, restart the 2048 the next day and the game state gets loaded
  • Night mode - Day/Night mode setting is saved

The game is working 100% offline, does only load bundled files - files are not loaded over network. Also no ads or other bloat, just the game and nothing else.

Froody [Android, Java, PHP]


🍎 Lets you share (mainly naturally growing) food to others
πŸ’ Intended to use in the local area - zoom in to your location and look for entries
🍐 The main idea is to share to and help other people by e.g. sharing pears, which would rot anyway if unused
🌽 Everyone can add entries (and delete them), no login needed
πŸ‡ Entries are available 60 days
πŸ… Translated into over 20 languages

Project discontinued since spring 2018.

Stringlate [Android, Java]

Fetches remote Git repositories containing the source code for Android applications, downloads the available strings.xml files in them for you to translate the strings to any other locale, in order to help the authors localize their applications into other languages.

Project discontinued in 2019.

Kimai Android [Android, Java]

Client for the time managment software Kimai. This app makes mobile tracking and logging into your kimai existing installation easier. If you want to be auto logged in after application start check the appropiate box.

Usually you have to open your browser, open bookmarks, click your kimai page, input data, press login, and then start tracking. Now you only have to do the last step every time you want to add entries.

If you like my work or just want to spend me coke beer or coffee, consider a small appreciation via

I’m too active on Battle.Net + Steam and always happy to give (old-) new games a try. If available I prefer to play Open Source or DRM free games, e.g. from Humble Bundle and alikes.

  • If you plan to signup for Humble Monthly you can use this referer link, which gives me free credits if you subscribe.
  • Let me know if you want to get started with some Blizzard game, I will gladly send an invitation (benefits for both).

Development

Currently I am mostly developing things with C++, Java, or Bash. As my main desktop OS is based on Linux I always try to build things crossplatform. On the mobile side my main focus is on Android. I am also working a lot on servers and development services, here I use serveral languages/frameworks mostly combined with Bash scripts. For embedded/IOT development I mostly work with Atmel or ARM based platforms (Arduino, AVR, Raspberry Pi, i.MX, ..).

Here are some more platforms, frameworks, services and technologies I used for development:

  • Java, Android
  • C++, Qt
  • F-Droid, OpenStreetMap, osmdroid
  • Bash, Go, Python
  • MySql, PostgreSQL, Sqlite
  • C, Β΅C(Atmel), Arduino
  • C#, Mono, Unity, Windows Phone 8.1
  • PHP, HTML, CSS, JS, Node.js
  • REST WebServices, Swagger
  • JSP/Servlets, Slim PHP, Flask
  • LaTex, Liquid, Markdown
  • iOS, Swift

  • CircleCI, Jenkins, GitLab CI, Travis CI
  • GitHub, GitLab, Gitea/Gogs, Bitbucket
  • Bugzilla, JIRA, Trac

  • Atom, Eclipse, Vim, Qt Creator, Unity
  • Visual Studio, Mono Develop, X-Code
  • Android Studio, IntelliJ, PyCharm, PhpStorm
