I studied mathematics, physics and computer science for the high-school teaching profession at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg in Germany where I completed my first state exam in 1997. In 2000 I received my teacher certification before working as technical trainer for Day Software, a provider of integrated content, portal and digital asset management software in Basel, Switzerland. I joined SAP end of 2001 and became a member of the Web Dynpro Java Runtime development team in 2002. Very soon I started leveraging my training skills by developing Web Dynpro Java tutorials and sample applications. Since then I was stressing technical knowledge transfer, training, roll-out, roll-in, documentation and development consulting on the Web Dynpro Java UI framework. I am co-author of the books "Maximizing Web Dynpro for Java" and "Java Programming with the Web Application Server". I lately changed into the SAP NetWeaver UI Foundation Operations team as Senior Product Specialist working on multiple NetWeaver UI Foundation topics.
