Hi there,

I’m Peter and I have a fairly unqiue background. I currently deeply enjoy working with iOS, both in UIKit and SwiftUI utlizing the Composable Architecture. Whenever I build things, I prototype, attempt to be as inclusive as possible and build reliable solutions - ideally fully unit and snapshot tested.

In my most recent role at Community.com, I’ve been building native features to allow leaders to engage in personalized mass communication as well as refactoring a legacy code-base.

My experience spans from wearable startup ROAR for Good to being the first in-house software developer at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I’ve dabbled in large-scale touch screens and walls, some automotive QA and prototyping as well as consulting with other businesses helping realize their dreams.

I love connecting with humans, pair and collaborate on features, continously learn and mentor others.

What I do

Apps & Web

I’m currently deep into native iOS development, but as a polyglot developer, I also work on backends and web frontends.

Community Engagement

We’re all in this together and I’m a big believer in sharing knowledge and hearing others sharing theirs. Check out my talks and presentations below.

Focus on the user

A product might have the best code base ever developed, but if the user interface is clunky, the user might just never use the app after downloading it. I build UIs that are intuitive, give instant feedback and are a pleasure to work with.

Software Architecture

I believe that the architecture of a product depends highly on the goal as well as the team building it. I’ve worked with MVC, MVVM, VIPER, CleanSwift and Event based systems.

Software Development

Whenever I work on a product, I try to get a working prototype in the hands of users as quickly as possible. A great product needs to be used from day one and shouldn’t be influenced by shareholders or planned in never ending meetings.

Teams win

I thrive working in teams and love collaborating with designers and non-technical stakeholders or team members. In larger organizations, I’m helping teams transform long, dreading meetings into working sessions, where things can be tweaked in real time.

I’m currently available for short and mid-term contractual projects. My favorites are native iOS apps and web projects.

Drivers Licenses

I currently hold 5 drivers licenses. I am not only a valid license holder for Germany (and the Autobahn), but I am also certified with B1, B2 and E1-rated licenses from BMW.

Open-Source for over 20 years

Way before GitHub and the major breakthrough of open-source software, I translated the documentation for the CD-burning software from English to German
