In 2010, I was privileged to serve as a judge in the ACM ICPC South African Regional Contest.

Since 2003, I have been involved in the participation of the Universität Karlsruhe (TH) in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest. These preparations have lead to the ACM ICPC Praktikum.

GI InformatiCup

Since its first incarnation in 2005 the GI InformatiCup has become ever more popular. I devise problem sets and judge submissions.

In 2016, we are privileged to have GitHub and Amazon as main sponsors for our AI-focused GitHub Repository Classifier.

In 2015, the finals were hosted by Goethe University Frankfurt at the rich in history Campus Westend. On behalf of TWT GmbH Science & Innovation I ceremoniously presented a special award for the best scientific transfer. Congratulations from the jury to all finalists.

In 2014, the finals were hosted by the Hasso-Plattner-Institut in Potsdam, Germany. I was privileged to deliver the opening speech and laudation for the finalists (HPI tele-TASK) Congratulations to the winning team.

Universität Tübingen

The motivation of the Tübinger Software Project (TSP) is to teach software design and software architecture in the context of a real life software project. In cooperation with local companies, students learn modern methods of project management, group organization and improve their communication skills through intensive teamwork and presentations.

From 2014 to 2015 I supervised a team of eight undergraduate students who developed the Status Report Kit – a project management software based on a fully fledged Spring MVC-based application and a SCRUM and DVCS-based software development process.

Universität Stuttgart

It is with great pleasure that I cosupervise master theses that are being conducted at the University of Stuttgart. Covered topics include automatic bug finding, software recommender systems, and combinations of repository and process mining.

Hochschule Esslingen

In January and March/April 2009 I delivered a data structures and programming course at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences. The 36 90-minute classes were largely based on Andrew Troelsen's brilliant Pro C# 2008 book.

Books I like

I maintain a short list of computer science books I like.
