My names are Ben, Yule, and b12f and I often spend my time engineering software. I really like cycling, cats, cooperatives, and free software.
My focus has often been on the frontend and devops side of things, though I'm increasingly involved in the organisational side of collaboration.
I've spent time as a frontend engineer @ hosting.de, frontend functional lead @ Convidera, and as a software engineer and design systems advocate @ OpenProject, in that order.
I'm a founding member of the free software non-profit pub.solar. We host a single-sign-on cloud with various services. We also organize a small hackathon four times a year. Come visit us at hakken.irl!
I'm also a founding member of the tech collective Momo. We're professionals with experience in various parts of IT. We help you find solutions to a wide range of IT problems.
Last but very much not least, I'm a founding member of the Cologne based creative collective MiOM. We create affordable spaces to work, make art, and collaborate in.
I consider myself a generalist in the field of IT, though I'm most proficient in the development and operation of web applications, and the administration of linux-based cloud infrastructures.
My previous work has involved software engineering, IT consulting, designing of user interfaces, devops, linux systems administration, seminar moderation, tech writing, and barkeeping ;)
