About Me

I’m a Zend Framework 2, Doctrine 2 and Docker enthusiast and a Full Stack Developer with a strong backend focus and have more than 10 years experience in web development.

Web Development

In my experience as Software Developer, I was responsible for quality assurance of projects, design and development of company wide used libraries, consulting of developers in software architecture, build, deployment and continuous integration.

  • PHP 5 (Zend Framework 2, Doctrine 2, Apigility, PHPUnit/Selenium, Prophecy)
  • MySQL 5
  • Webservices (REST, SOAP, XML-RPC, JSON-RPC)
  • XML
  • HTML 5 / CSS 3
  • JavaScript (jQuery, Dojo Toolkit)

Software Tools

A Software Developer is only as good as his tools, maybe. Well, I use the following tools to get things done.

  • Profiling / Debugging (Zend Server Z-Ray, XHProf & XHGui, Xdebug, Blackfire)
  • Build/Deployment (Composer, Phing, Vagrant, Puppet, Ansible, Gulp, Grunt)
  • Quality Assurance (PHPUnit, Behat, PHP Codesniffer, several PHP metric tools)
  • Continuous Integration (Jenkins, Travis-CI)
  • Version Control System (GIT)
  • Agile Software Development with SCRUM (Atlassian Products)
  • PhpStorm

Software Design

There are many conceptual things to learn and it will never end.

  • Object-oriented analysis and design (OOAD)
  • Object-oriented programming (OOP)
  • Database Design
  • Test-Driven-Development (TDD)
  • Behavior-Driven-Development (BDD)
  • Domain-Driven-Design (DDD)
  • Event Sourcing (ES)
  • Command Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS)


I have experience in setting up and configuration of development and production systems.

  • nginx
  • Apache 2
  • MySQL Server, MariaDB
  • Docker
  • Linux/Unix
