Articles

The internet is giving us the ability to share ideas, knowledge and thoughts and so I'm writing articles on development-related topics from time to time. Grab the RSS-feed and stay updated!

I'm happy to receive any feedback both on my writing and the content itself. Feel free to send me a message on my twitter!

  1. A Simple Blogroll for My Website

    Back in the days almost every blog had a blogroll: A simple list of other websites that the owner likes or recommends. I’ve already seen some on other sites in the past weeks – maybe it’s time to bring that tradition back.

  8. Welcome to My New Website

    After years and years of just having some placeholder-site on that domain that I use for emails, I decided to build a classic homepage. My own little place on the internet, that is just about me. Welcome.
