My skills (aka features)

In my full-time job, I'm a professional Android engineer, so I daily use the Android SDK. Since some years now, I write apps in beautiful Kotlin ❤️ (but sure I also can write Java of course) using Kotlin Coroutines, MVVM, View/Data Binding, already a bit of Jetpack Compose and TDD (Test-Driven-Development) if necessary. In this process, I use Git with CI and Jenkins. For my private projects I additionally use other Android Jetpack components a lot, the cross-platform database abstraction SQLDelight and also OkHttp+Retrofit to communicate with REST-APIs via JSON. I already created some backend systems with Python 3 (using frameworks like Django, Flask+SQLAlchemy+Marshmallow), which I deployed on my Debian server with Nginx and Gunicorn. If I work with electronics (smart home/IoT), I like to use the Arduino platform. Finally, in the past I used web technologies like PHP, HTML 5 and CSS 3.

I like to work in a precise and detailed way to achieve a high product quality. I have a lot of experience writing clean code (shout-out to Robert C. Martin) and also keeping the code clean (which is often a lot more effort). Furthermore, I'm highly interested in cryptographic topics, so I build up a lot of knowledge in this field as well.
