Principles
  • Good software development starts with building a clear understanding of the problem you want to solve.
  • Manage complexity by reusing "boring technologies" and innovating only where it makes sense.
  • Software projects rarely fail because they are too small; they fail because they get too big.
  • The hard limit to system complexity is not the quantity of engineering effort, but its quality.
  • Software is about developing knowledge more than writing code.

Interests

Apart from being a software engineer, I try to keep learning new things ranging from an advanced basketball statistics to grilling and trying out sports such as beach voleyball. My motto is that I have to go to sleep at least a little bit more clever than when I woke up.

Also, I'm a proud owner of three lovely Bernese Mountain Dogs. Follow our adventures on meskuzeme.eu.
