Hi! I'm Pierre. My background is in pure programming in various languages from C to higher level languages like Java. That's what I learned and that's what I am good at. After a decade of writing software for different companies I figured out that I'm more interested in creating software in a more agnostic fashion. Just using Linux as a daily driver since 2006 was not enough anymore. Nearly a second decade later I gathered skills in many fields of modern IT, which helped me achive this goal. I focused more on cross-platform application development, got in touch with the open source movement and even call myself a open source evangelist now. I still try to find a spot in open source where I can contribute.
If you'd like to get in touch, just drop me a line via email or find me on different platforms.

Keybird IT GmbH, Stuttgart - Germany
IT specialist • 2017 - 2017
At Keybird I worked as a software developer with Java as the main language. As a starter, it was planned that I help out the current team which struggled to get the REST API of their project done in time. After that I should switch to another long term project which was in a very early planning phase. Unfortunately, the project setup changed and the REST API development got on hold in favour of other project-milestones. Keybird was not able to put me on another project, because most of them were still in the design-phase or already fully setup with developers and architects. Also, they had not enough resource to hold me until another opportunity to work would be found.

IT specialist • 2009 - 2009
T–Systems employees at the location Leinfelden had to be migrated to a newly set network topology. To be able to work in the team, it was necessary for me to have knowledge about Windows networks, domain controllers, DNS, DHCP services and hardware router / switches. The pre-planning of the internal IT of T–Systems was not optimal. Time and money went out of the bounds and so it was my job to help optimize all processes. After several optimization-steps we achieved a 53 % benefit in time and money and the project only extended the given time frame by 1.5 days and budget by 3.700 Euro.
