my name is Ben. I work on high-scalable platforms for IoT and Industry 4.0 focused on the next generation of connected industry based on Azure and .NET.

At a young age I took my first steps in programming with Tcl/TK before I switched to C# in 2002. Before I switched 2007 to ASP.NET MVC, I collected the first web experiences with PHP and ASP.NET WebForms. Right now, I'm focused on cloud and IoT architectures based on .NET, ASP.NET, NoSQL and SQL, Docker and various cloud platforms like DigitalOcean, Amazon AWS - but especially on Microsoft Azure.
