I'm currently the Managing Director of the Eclipse Foundation Europe GmbH, a subsidiary of the Eclipse Foundation Inc., responsible for supporting the Eclipse open-source community and commercial ecosystem in Europe.
With over 260 corporate members worldwide and over 150 projects, Eclipse is one of the world’s most successful open source communities.
Prior to joining Eclipse in 2005, I have worked for Vector Informatik, IBM , OTI and Siemens.
I've earned a degree as a Diplom-Informatiker from the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany. I can also lay bricks.
