Who am I?

When I was 10 years old, I decided to become a software developer – and to everyone's surprise I really did become that! During the job interview my first employer asked me: “Do you know SAP R/2?”. And I said “No”. He said: "You are hired".

These days, I’m celebrating my 30th SAP anniversary. Unbelievable, right?

I live in Vienna, the beautiful capital of Austria and truly one of the most livable cities in the world. I can confirm that! Did you know, that the "Vienna Zoo" (Tiergarten Schönbrunn) is the oldest continuously operating zoo in the world? Founded as an imperial menagerie in 1752!

I am engaged and a father of two.

In my free time I like to go biking or hiking and I love going to live concerts. It doesn't matter if it's Metallica, Alice Cooper or a little unknown band.

From time to time I take my old computers (Philips Videopac; Commodore 16/64/128) out of the basement and play the good old games. I love these funny old games.

I help organize the SAP Inside Track Vienna and the SAP Stammtisch Wien. I regularly organize SAP Code Jams or other SAP Community Events and sometimes I do German webinars about the exciting world of SAP and ABAP.

1. What do you enjoy most in your work and why?

Sometimes I feel like an artist. If you create a new application, you can bring a lot of your own ideas into the final solution. I enjoy working on a perfect, well designed user interface. And at the end, if the work is done, I (usually) feel very comfortable.

And I like to learn something new. If you want to be successful in the IT Industry, you have to improve yourself regularly. I love to educate myself; I love to get to know new topics.

2. Which 5 things do you absolutely want to achieve in life?

I think you always have to have new goals in life. My list is always expanding and I have many more items on my list, but here are 5 of them!

  • Become a software developer -> Done!

  • Stand on the Empire State Building -> Done!

  • Become a father -> Done! (Twice! 😉 )

  • Travel to Alaska -> Pending!

  • Write a book -> Pending!

3. Recommend resources of information that helped you in your work

Of course I use a lot more resources. Let me just mention a few very important ones:

A few months earlier we had a (german) webinar about this topic. Check out this blog for more details.
