Areas of interest
Being on a road to "Industrie 4.0", a lot of technology is involved. Main areas of matter to me below
Maintaining security in services and infrastructure is a major requirement to provide reliable processes. To me this works at high levels by roles as well as low levels by software security. Nowadays focus on latter, as in good environments trust and responibility works.
Sometimes solutions to problems are obvious, especially in web development. Creating something that lasts more than 90 days though requires more thinking. Management, which I belong to now, will have to take care of this in the future.
Think big, start small
Getting somethin out fast is key to success in some areas. I'm fan of rapid prototyping, be it in mechanical experiments or software tools. Whatever gives a direct connection between problem and result is helpful to me. Loving to hear stories about that all day long.
Having developed a retrofit myself I learned what it means to design good user experience for workers in production areas. Set a new standard at least for some companies by now with it.
Albeit a bit hyped at the moment, technology in day to day life is nowhere more close to reality as in our homes. Intelligent heating and cooling saves energy and makes you feel way more comfy.
I'd be more than happy to hear from you, so leave me a mail or reach me on socials.
