Yesterday, we had our May 2018 edition of the Web Engingineering DUS Meetup with five very different lightning talks. Roundabout 75 people showed up.
Dome and I run the WebEngDUS meetup for quite some time, and we ask ourselves how we can improve the experience and the value of this event. We try to play around with different formats of the evening, with a broad range of topics, with various speakers and so on.
Last week, Hans Puac, a colleague of mine, wrote a small guide into our internal company chat on how to migrate your local PHP environment on macOS to the new Homebrew version 1.5.*. The guide helped a lot of other engineers inside trivago. I thought it might help more people from the internet. I asked Hans if I am allowed to share it, and he approved. So kudos belongs to him.
In January this year, I wrote and published an article about our learnings of redis in production.
The article Learn Redis the hard way (in production) was published in the trivago techblog. Check it out!
I have been organizing the PHP Usergroup Duesseldorf for about four years now.
A monthly meetup focused on web engineering and new trends in this area.
I do this with a friend, 100% non-profit and motivated by our passion for open source, learning, meeting motivated people, and fun.
The last time, many people asked me about my experience and if I can share some tips or what is essential when starting a new meetup (and I asked for it).
In this post, I summarize all of that and provide tips, tricks and my lessons learned.
Since some time I am fascinated by the go programing language launched by Google in 2009.
I am a person with a scripting language background (PHP and Python) and was motivated to learn a new programing language.
I chose go(lang) because I wanted to do some system programming with concurrency support.
Because I share my love with my friends and colleagues, I am often asked How do I start with Go?, or Do you got some excellent resources to learn Go?.
This article is about which resources I used to learn Go.
For quite some time I was looking for a new name for an open source project of mine: TYPO3-Analytics.
I am (sadly) not creative in naming things or painting.
The most prominent part of creativity is during development and programming.
To find a name is (in my point of view) very difficult.
This post is about my bachelor thesis, a conference, cool people from Spain, some academic paper, a lot of open source and how it can be if you let the flow runs :)
Everything started in February 2013.
At this time I studied business informatics next to my fulltime job at wmdb Systems GmbH as a software developer (mainly as web developer for TYPO3 related projects).
At Apr 19, 2013 I started TYPO3-Analytics to create a prototype or proof of concept to make my first steps in fields data mining/software repository mining, statistics, and data visualization.
At this time I got an extensive and in-depth knowledge of the TYPO3 ecosystem (code, people, tools, systems, processes, events, etc.) and the TYPO3 community manager Ben van ’t ende motivated me to create some metrics ;)
So the first project was TYPO3.
