My way to AWS started far away from it at a private bank in Hamburg, where I not only developed Java applications but also had the chance to modernize their CI/CD pipelines. After that, I moved to Edeka to help them to build up their AWS infrastructure. I designed event-driven architectures based on Java SpringBoot, Kotlin and Python. Other projects gave me the possibility to try my skills on Azure and GCP, but my heart is always burning for AWS. In my private time, I'm actively supporting the community by participating at AWS Meetups as a speaker and contributing to GitHub projects like moto, checkov and many more.
