Agile Software Development
Getting to be a part of adopting and figuring out Agile at incubedIT and seeing it at scale at Dynatrace,
both general Agile principles and the practices of creating software that allows for being agile fascinate me.
Since 2021 I co-organize Agile International Graz - an English-language Agile Meetup in Graz.

Sharing knowledge has been a common theme from my civilian service, through my studies to my work and personal projects.
