bl@cksheep - Professional Profile


I wrote my first program more than 30 years ago when I was 8 years old. It was written in Pascal on an Apple ][e and calculated the Greatest Common Divisor. I was so proud when it finally work - from that day on computers where part of my life.

After successfully studying computer science I worked in a large cardiologic department as software developer. A few years later I went back to university and my PhD in medical computer science (Dr. sc. inf. biomed.). During this time a lead small team of really smart develeopers and we implemented the market leading cardiologic information system for the German market. In the following years I worked for Siemens but I missed this inspiring, creative athmosphere of a small company. So I changed back to a small start-up.

We are specialized on Webdevelopment and Windows technologies (C#, .Net, Silverlight, WPF, WCF, WinForms, Prism etc.). We are also experts in in Databases (ORACLE, MS-SQL-Server, PostgreSQL), medical standards (HL7, DICOM, IHE) and coordination of larger projects (including techniques like Agile Development and SCRUM). So if you are looking for a smart and efficient developer just contact me.

I started with C# and .NET in 2003. When Silverlight 2 hit the market I took a look at it and never let go again. Now - after two years and more than 500,000 lines of code - I think that I have a good theoretical and pratical understanding of this technology. So I would like to give back something to the community and share some tricks with you. I hope that it helps somebody - like all the interesting articles I read while learning the secrets of Silverlight, C#, .NET ...
