About Me


A Professional Software Architect and Community Expert

I am a professional software architect and developer evangelist, working in the Consumer IoT department of Deutsche Telekom in my day job. I am an expert in building and leading Open Source developer communities.

Home automation is my passion since childhood and in 2010 I have founded the very popular open Home Automation Bus (openHAB) project, which has gained a vibrant community.

You can meet me at international conferences, where I regularly speak about all topics around IoT & smart homes.
