Sharing Web Development Inspiration

In my experience, staying up-to-date and curious about web development is crucial for developing stable, modern, appealing, and accessible digital solutions on the web.

Through this blog, I aim to share what inspires me in web development, with a particular focus on the core building blocks of the web: HTML, CSS, and JS.

Passion for frontend

I have been sitting in front of screens since the era of 8-bit home computers and started working in web development at the end of the 1990s. Throughout my career, I have worked in all aspects of frontend development, from the beginnings of CSS, over Web 2.0 with Responsive Web Design to Single Page and Progressive Web Apps and all the “cool” things nowadays.

As a frontend engineer, I have been working in agile enterprise web products for over 15 years, and since 2020, I have been supporting the digital transformation of Boehringer Ingelheim within its digital lab BIX through e-health web solutions and developer relations activities.

I place a high value on semantics and accessibility, as well as sustainable and performant CSS and Javascript. In addition to technical work, I also educate stakeholders and product team members on web best practices and agile methodologies in a fast-changing environment, as well as mentoring junior and intermediate developers.

I’m the founder and main facilitator of Frontend RheinMain.

In my free time, I enjoy indulging in computer nostalgia, playing both acoustic and electronic drums, taking photos with a “real” camera, hiking, playing board games, and spending way too much money on vinyl and concerts.
