Examples of my work
The main website for Student Affairs, which since has undergone a re-design, is a Drupal site.
The design of that site was created by a vendor, hence my responsibilities included the ongoing maintenance and development of that site, in addition to numerous custom PHP applications.
Originally from Berlin (Germany), which is where I stayed until I finished studying computer science at the Technical University Berlin in the mid-1990s.
Shortly after that, and after about a year as contract worker for BMW in southern Germany, I moved to Africa to teach Computer Science at the Polytechnical University in Namibia for a few years.
Fast forward to today, for the last 10 years I've worked for Universities in the United States. While also developing custom PHP web applications, a significant focus was on the administration and development of websites powered by Drupal and WordPress.
Additionally I enjoy to be active in the Drupal community - not only as a supporting member of the Drupal Association, but also by contributing to the Drupal project wherever I can.
About two years ago I published the project "helpfulness" on Drupal.org, which provides a quick and easy way to integrate a form on a Drupal site to gather feedback from the user - an example is shown here.
The feedback is stored in the database and optionally can be send via email. It has several options like integrating spam control, and I hope this project can be useful to whoever would like to use it.
I have also converted it to Drupal 8 (...something I gave a talk about at DrupalCamp Michigan in 2016), and while the Drupal 8 version is officially still in Alpha status I have been using it on website for some time without any issues. If you want to try it and let me know how it goes, that would greatly appreciated!
